On June 18, 1997, Pol Pot already asked to confess. The dark cloud of Pol Pot dictatorial
regime covered the history of Cambodia since 1975. Now the people of Cambodia have
destroyed it already. Our international position is based on peaceful existence,
constitution of the United Nations, international laws and cooperation with neighboring
countries. A new era has already begun.
