Rebuilding the Peace

Editors:

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.
