Selected Comments during the Chat with Handicapped Soldiers

My wife and I are so happy to come see you all at the 317 center of Kiensvay for the handicapped soldiers. In September last year my wife and I came here and listened to your suggestions. We have retained this center while others have been transferred to the Ministry of Social and Veteran Affairs. We have now prepared for their residence where each family will get a plot of 1.5 hectare land and we have reserved a size of 171 hectares land as public property in which 12 hectares for schools, six hectares for pagoda and 6 hectares for health centre, four hectares for market construction and 6 hectares for administrative use, four hectares for electric station and 12 hectares for plants growing to produce biofuel.

Selected Comments at the Opening of the Inter-religion Symposium

It is indeed a grateful experience for our Buddhist students to learn from other countries through representatives from Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Indonesia. As I said in my prepared text that religions in Cambodia had died in the genocide regime between 1975 and 1979. Though the root of religion has been a long one in history but in Cambodia they all just revived the same time. If Polpotists were just narrow minded nationalists they would have abolished other religions but not Buddhism. But they abolished all and that is their crime against humanity that they have to be accountable for while undergoing trial in the court.
