SENIOR officials were on hand Wednesday to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the founding of the Solidarity Front for the Development of the Cambodian Motherland, a Khmer Rouge-era forerunner to the current CPP government.

During a ceremony at Chaktomuk Theatre, National Assembly and Solidarity Front President Heng Samrin reminded attendees of the role the nascent group played in overthrowing Pol Pot’s regime.

“During the Khmer Rouge regime, the Cambodian country was turned into a killing field, whose tears remain in the minds of the people,” he told the audience. The Solidarity Front was established on December 2, 1978, in Chheung Chhlou village, in a liberated region in Kratie province’s Snuol district, as an advance guard for the Vietnamese offensive that toppled the Pol Pot regime.
