I have mentioned this painful story many times, but I have not yet raised the question in my mind, that if I did not decide to lead the struggle starting from June 20, 1977, then where did Pol Pot kill me? And by what means? Next question, was there any other patriot who formed the National Unity Armed Forces in my place? How did the journey to liberate the country from the Pol Pot regime come about? Was there a solution through negotiations and the Paris Agreement? And finally, was there a win-win policy to end the war, bring peace and development as it is today?
These brief questions are always embedded in my brain, and I cannot answer this question myself, I will leave it to my compatriots to help find the answer.

[…] For the water/electricity fees, we also ask Electricite du Cambodge (EDC) as well as the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority (PPWSA) to focus on workers’ rented houses in advance, which they can give them favor in charging for water/electricity as a contribution to the landlords to solve the common problems of our workers […]
[…] We have not yet gotten to a point where vaccination is the basis for travel, to reduce the need for quarantine and to enter workplaces, yet. We are at the initial phase of vaccination, in which, in some places, some people got their first doses, while in other places the first doses have not even started yet. Therefore, the resistance to the disease is not yet effective […]
[…] I hope those who can afford it do not fight to get help among those who are in need […] Now is not the time to take on the issue of equality and equity and make it a condition to address employment. Wait until Phnom Penh and Kandal Province or the whole country to be vaccinated and those who refuse to be vaccinated are clearly unemployed or unable to find work due to unfortunate propaganda of some people […]
[…] . I hope everybody could go through this hardship together. Although we cannot end the February 20 community event, we will be able to get it under control and reduce the number of infections and deaths […]

• […] We must continue to impose quarantines for those suspected with high-risk Covid-19 in order to get their samples for tests and to decide if they needed quarantines, but not all people passing through their provinces […]
• […] I am asking His Excellency Lok Chumteav, the provincial governors, who have already issued a decision (on unnecessary quarantines on travelers) to amend that decision or facilitate people’s movement. I say this (is) not to prevent those who have suspicions to take sample and to have inevitable quarantines, but to amend the decision to allow people to travel […]
• If not (amend the decision), we will then control only the people in each own province. People from other provinces who go to work in any respective province must do quarantines and vice versa. If so, (we will do) quarantines all over the country. It is no different than we shut down the country, shut down the city some time ago and crash the engine of the socio-economic process of the people […]
• […] This matter needs to be corrected and reported back to me at the (online) group between the Prime Minister and the Governors/Mayors as to which provinces did and which provinces did not … by this time, the people had to farm, to travel here and there for their businesses […]
