Samdech Techo Hun Sen,
Message on the 20th Anniversary of the Pailin’s Integration and
the 25th Anniversary of the Paris Peace Agreement, 19 October 2016.
[…] Covid-19 has caused us damages for the past ten months already and now the flash flood because of rainwater did us more. We have not yet come up with estimate of damages since everyone knows that our prioritized effort is to bring our people in flood-hit areas to safe grounds […] where the 290 military trucks that some people blamed us for purchasing them (at the time of Covid-19) have been serving this rescue operation. [...] a real action to counter such accusation [...]
[…] in the spirit of responsibility of the Royal Government and relevant authorities at every levels, national and sub-national, to resolve the problems implicated by flooding, I agree with the measures taken and proposed actions, including ones about widening waterways. The Ministry of Water Resource (and Meteorology) and the Ministry of Public Works must get on to this task [...]
[..] We will soon conduct evaluation on damages caused and what we can and needed to address […] we will be estimating how long we are going to provide cash assistance according to the amount we have in contribution from generous fellows. I am taking this opportune moment to call on banks and micro-finance institutions – whom I have appealed before to exercise their favorable policies helping workers whose income affected by closing factories, etc. for Covid-19 pandemic – to extend such favors to people affected by flood […]
[…] As we are getting to 23 October (the Paris Peace Agreement), there have been some who urged people for a demonstration. Let me warn those who would organize demonstration in front of the Chinese Embassy in Phnom Penh, as everyone is busy with flood situation, they should not cause other troubles [...]
[…] We will win these hardships. Firstly, we believe that we can prevent the Covid-19 pandemic from a community spreading, [...] Secondly, we will overcome difficulties caused by flooding in Beanteay Meanjei in particular and in the country as a whole. Thirdly, we will succeed in restoring economy in the post-flood and post-Covid-19 pandemic […]
[…] As far as infrastructure issue is concerned, I know, some people have said they would not want our humanitarian relief packages or rice but reconstruction of roads. To restore connectivity by means of roads reconstruction and/or rebuilding dams damaged by flooding are indeed our priority […]
Samdech Techo Hun Sen,
Visit the Flash Flood Victims in Banteay Meanjei, 21-22 October 2020.
I will be working in Banteay Meanchey for two days, October 21 and 22, 2020, before returning to Phnom Penh to chair the Cabinet meeting on October 23, 2020.
Banteay Meanchey is the worst-hit and longest-suffering province from flash flood, which needs to prioritize both rescue and rehabilitation after the floods. I thank the generous people who helped with the budget, materials, food, etc. through the Royal Government or the Red Cross or sub-national authorities or distribute directly to the affected people.
I would like to thank the national institutions and authorities at all levels, the Armed Forces of all kinds, the monks, the youth groups who have participated in rescuing the people in the affected areas. It does show the strong and comprehensive unity of our nation.
I wish all my compatriots happiness.
Samdech Techo HUN SEN ,

[…] every provinces must be prepared to liberate people from affected areas while in the next few days there would be another storm […] we must not underestimate possible flooding situation […] my appreciations go to the armed forces, and local and relevant competent authorities for their efforts to work hands in hands to rescue our people from harm […]
[…] now that we evacuated them from flood-affected areas to safety […] when the flood recedes, we must help them get back to their living areas […] physicians must monitor and provide treatments to whoever might have fallen ill in this difficult time […] may our people drink clean water that I have provided […]. I thank Oknha Hong Piv for providing this place as a provisional settlement for our people coming from flood-affected areas […]
[…] police force, the military police, and militia must be on high attention in helping protect properties in homes of people who have evacuated to safety […] I thank generous people for providing the Royal Government with their financial contributions to rescue the flood-affected people. We have received so far over six million USD […] decided to provide additional fund for the province of Kandal to deal with the flood disaster […]
[…] Thailand informed us of the possibility of discharging water to (our side). However, as of this moment, nothing of that sort has happened yet […] if Thailand really let go of water from their catchment system, Banteay Meanjei would be in big trouble […]. (For the flood of) the year 2000, rainwater could not go into the catchment systems of Tonle Sap and Bassac because the level of water in the systems was already high […]
[..] This is a rainwater flooding and there had been so much rainwater in the plain areas […] I do not mean to argue with anyone (who said that all this happened because us filling up lakes) but I wanted to explain our people about why we have rainwater flooding […] people must take high precaution especially against poisonous animals […]
[…] I wish to have my presence here at nightfall because I wanted to see clearly the way our people have been rather than reading/listening to reports […] (we must make sure) no Cambodian left to die of drowning or from other flood-related accidents […] I am calling on our people to still exercise social distancing to protect themselves from Covid-19. We have used only 800,000 USD from the contribution fund […] when the flood is over, we will use the remaining fund to help the flood-affected families […]
[…] Cambodians abroad could have learnt about this situation and heard what I have said from live broadcast of Fresh News TV and other TV stations [...] and hope that the Cambodian people will win over the Covid-19, the flood situation, and work to restore our country altogether […]
