Tobacco and the media

Dear Editor,

First of all, I would like to thank you very much for quoting my comments through telephone interview in an article titled "WHO left holding breath for tobacco control law" issued on Phnom Penh Post, volume 17, number 15, dated on July 25, 2008.

I would like to request you for a change on 9th paragraph from [He said that government has sought cooperation from tobacco companies to limit their advertising or sponsorship of public event] to "The government has sought cooperation from the media organisations to limit tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship using mass media". It is right to work with Media Organisations to reduce tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship of public events, but it is totally wrong to work with Tobacco Company in any issue related to tobacco control.
