Message from Pyramids' Land

Editors:

Peace be with you. I came from Egypt as a civic education and training specialist

to share with all UNTAC volunteers and to participate in solving the problems of

one of our friendly countries, Cambodia.

I have lived in Egypt through two periods: war and peace. The war period was from

1948 to l973, and peace after l973.

We have suffered more and more from war. Our financial resources were diverted to

the war machine [which] severely affected the development of our country. Many people

were killed, buildings were destroyed, and many problems appeared in our life. We

have come to believe that after war, peace is the only way to rebuild our country,

and developing it to live in good condition and raise the standard of life for all

people. Without peace no country can save money for social and economic development,

and we can see, judge and compare the countries which live in war and the countries

which live in peace.

My best wishes for all the Cambodian people to live in peace, to rebuild and reconstruct

their lovely country and I can say to all the Cambodian citizens as a message from

the land of the pyramids: "Peace be with you."
- Sabry Ibrahim Assad, U.N. Volunteer
