In the light of our experiences in Egypt to build the peace, I can say to Cambodian
people that you must work and do your best to rebuild and reconstruct your country.
All the parties must cooperate to draw the system of planning for economic and social
development. They must expect that the road still remains long, but the results will
be very good for all Cambodian people.
All of the parties must pay more attention to social development and the need for
harmony between woman's work duties and her family responsibilities, because it is
difficult, if not impossible to make a distinction between family care and child
care. That is to say, children are the gift granted to the family, whereas the family
is the childhood-maker.
Similarly, the child of today is the head of the future family, and the family of
today forms the child and influences his personality considerably.
Care must also be given to all the needs of people: social and health services and
education must be a right for all the Cambodian people.
All the people must work and share in rebuilding their country by making use of the
human resources and material potential of the families in fruitful work which would
be of benefit to them later and contribute to increasing the national income.
In order to rebuild your lovely country Cambodia, all citizens must participate in
building up and developing their society.
