Hun Sen's reply

The following is an unofficial translation from Khmer of Second Prime Minister

Hun Sen's reply, later that same afternoon, Dec 12.

Samdech Hun Sen

Second Prime Minister of the Royal Government of Cambodia

Som Krap Tvay Bangkum

Preah Karuna Preah Bat Samdech Preah Norodom Sihanouk Varman

King of the Kingdom of Cambodia

Respected Your Majesty,

First of all, I would like to pay my highest respects to Your Majesty the King for

your kindness and mercy in sending me Your Royal Message with Your belief that I

can share the indescribable difficulties in the heart of Your Majesty.

Your Majesty's description about the fault on the part of His Royal Highness Sdech

Krom Khun Norodom Sirivudh and Your Majesty's humble ideas to settle that regretful

problem prompted me to be increasingly respectful and sralanh [heart-felt] toward

Your Majesty, who is the mlop do trajak [peaceful umbrella], and committed to defending

the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Throne.

I am of the view that His Royal Highness Sdech Krom Khun Norodom Sirivudh must not

continue whatever which causes further concern to Your Majesty the King.

I wish to fully follow the humble ideas that have been raised in Your Majesty's Royal

Message, with respect and fidelity for Your Majesty who is the sacred Monarch full

of charity for the Kingdom of Cambodia.

I wish to raise my palms and pray Tevada-guardian of the Great Svetachhat, the memory

of preceding Kings and Queens, and all mighty objects protecting the Cambodian land

to bless Samdech Euv and Samdech Mae with long lives for You to remain as the mlop

do trajak [peaceful umbrella] for all the children, grand children and grand-grand

children for ever.

May Your Majesty forgive any improprieties.

Phnom Penh, December 12, 1995

Hun Sen
