Selected Impromptu Comments at the Closing Session of the Annual Review Meeting of the Ministry of National Defense

Along with the prepared text, Samdech Techo Hun Sen made additional impromptu comments that CNV is selecting and translating unofficially as followed:

Filling Trenches, Building Hotels

As far as command base is concerned, let us not be extreme. There has been this comments that Hun Sen is filling up all the strategic trenches. I then asked them back what defines a strategic trench. How could a trench be strategic when it sits only 200 meters away from the border? They call it strategic. Well, my policy is to fill up those trenches. As you may have learnt that there used to be trenches in the whole of Cambodian territory, Phnom Penh included. I fill them all up. Why do we need them? We fill them up and build hotels, houses, farms, etc.
