Dangerous logging free-for-all

Editors:

I was very favorably impressed by the article entitled "Forests Threatened by

Logging Free-for-All" by Angela Gennino and Sara Colm.

This article is very useful to the Cambodian nation which must become aware of the

very serious danger manacing its future and, at the same time, also its present and

its people.

In the article, the distinguished authors have cited deservedly, that is to say equitably,

the patriotic speeches of Mr. Son Sann, president of the KPNLF and the BLDP.

For my part, I have not ceased, since my return to the bosom of my native country

on Nov. 14, 1991, to speak about this danger, to draw attention to it to the four

Cambodian factions and the Cambodian and international communities.

With the competent U.N. authorities (UNDP, UNTAC) in Phnom Penh, I have worked and

am working to contribute to the rectification of a situation that has become more

and more worrying.

I wish that your important newspaper would accord a little importance to my recent

message to the Global Conference on the Environment convened in Rio de Janeiro and

to my speech at the recent International Conference in Tokyo on the Rehabilitation

and Reconstruction of Cambodia.

I thank you for your attention and please accept the assurances of my highest and

most cordial consideration.

- Norodom Sihanouk
