Reports on SR projects 'unfounded'


DEPUTY Prime Minister and Apsara Authority Chairman Sok An on Tuesday encouraged 300 delegates at the International Coordinating Committee for the Safeguarding and Development of the Historic Site of Angkor (ICC) to share information in order to dispel disingenuous media reports about the management of the ruins.

"Imprecise or incomplete information, sometimes completely unfounded or lies, is circulating," he said in remarks made as part of a two-day conference. "It falls to us to give, regularly and clearly, information on the works in progress."

He added, "In this way, we can avoid all risk of dissemination of baseless judgments or remarks on the protection and development of Angkor".

Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said the conference was convened to pool information and generate discussion about development projects in Siem Reap.

Sok An also said, "However satisfied we are, the common objective remains to do better."
