Exonerate King Sihanouk

Dear Editor,

I write regarding the letter [May 4] by Dr Naranhkiri Tith.

The King had his vision of protection, preservation and development of the nation. He led the movement because he needed his country out of wars.

However, he was not smart enough to know what would result from his movements.

Furthermore, many pressures also pressed on him. But we can understand about his real visions on leading the movement is to protect Cambodia.
