MP Hun Many Credits Government’s Peace Policy for Preserving Cambodian Heritage

PHNOM PENH: MP Hun Many said that peace in Cambodia revived the country’s deep cultural heritage, which was almost erased by the Khmer Rouge. He cited Cambodia’s growing number of World Heritage inscriptions as a sign of the nation’s enduring culture.

Hun Many posted on his Facebook page on July 7, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Preah Vihear Temple’s inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. He credited the Angkor-era temple’s recognition to the dedication and hard work of the Royal Government, led by his father Prime Minister Hun Sen.

He wrote that the peace that was established by the government allowed cultural heritage to be preserved and promoted, after nearly being destroyed completely.

"Keeping the peace means taking care of our ancestral cultural heritage," he said.

It should also be noted that the Temple of Preah Vihear was included as a World Heritage Site on July 7, 2008.
