PM Hun Sen Sheds Tears When He Sees the Progress and Smiles of the People

PHNOM PENH: Prime Minister Hun Sen said that he has recently shed tears when seeing the progress and happiness of the people under his leadership.

Speaking at the meeting with Grade A students on Tuesday morning (3 May, 2022), Prime Minister Hun Sen said that in recent weeks, he has shed happy tears twice. The first time was when he went to attend the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit in Japan. While in Japan, Prime Minister Hun Sen met with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who played a music video of a song Japan had written on the hardships of the Cambodian people after the Khmer Rouge regime. Upon watching this video, Prime Minister Hun Sen said he shed tears in front of the Japanese Prime Minister. The second time Prime Minister Hun Sen said he shed tears was this morning (Tuesday, 3 May), after seeing all the changes in Cambodia now compared to the time right after the liberation from the Khmer Rouge regime.

Prime Minister Hun Sen, 69, first became Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1979 at the age of 27 and has been the Prime Minister of Cambodia since 1985 to present day. He led Cambodia with empty hands, from being a country torn apart by war, to a country that is united and prosperous today.
