King

Father Norodom Sihanouk announced Saturday that he would return to

Cambodia next month after spending nearly one full year in China

receiving medical treatment. In a statement sent to media, Sihanouk,

who is 87, said, "Between July 9 and September 2, 2009, I will have

honour and happiness to live in Cambodia, in the midst of my lovely

compatriots." He said he would return to China in September at the

behest of his "very eminent Chinese doctors" for further treatment. The

former monarch announced last Monday that his doctors had cured his

third bout of cancer.
