He couldn't even manage the opportunity, it’s not hard to write a letter, it would have push me into a difficult situation. Now I should thank Rainsy, if [sends a letter of condolence] i do not accept, I can not accept, I have to owe an answer to the local supporters, will say that my boss [Rainsy] will return home because the Prime Minister has already answered.

The Prime Minister seemed to shake Kem Sokha's hand because before leaving for the United States, there was a four-hour meeting, but according to this message, the meeting between Samdech Techo and Kem Sokha was not useful at all. On the other hand, we see that Mr. Kem Sokha has no weight or political weight in the negotiations and is not valued by Samdech Hun Sen as a party to the negotiations to end the problem in Cambodia.”

He observed that from the previous point of view, PM Hun Sen always has a response when there is condolences to him for the loss of family members.

"Sending a message of condolence that could be a political solution seems too early for such a conclusion," he said. But if we look at the past when there is a message of condolence, almost everything is a response from the Samdach, look like it never misses when there is a message of condolence. At least he sent a private message of thanks.”
