Sihanouk feeling well

KING Father Norodom Sihanouk remains in good health despite a recent declaration that he will cease publishing messages on his personal Web site, palace sources said.

"The health of King Father and Queen Mother is good, but the King Father feels very tired as he is busy with myriad programmes and activities," said Prince Sisowath Thomico, an adviser to King Norodom Sihamoni.

In a press statement released on Saturday in Siem Reap, where he is currently residing, Sihanouk said said he is ageing both physically and mentally, and no longer has the energy to fulfil his full round of personal duties.

"The reason is because my poor health and the loss of my intellectual faculties," the 86-year-old King said.

Sihanouk and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath returned to Cambodia on July 8.
