Editors:

Congratulations on the Phnom Penh Post. This is the first time in my life in my beloved

country to see an English version newspaper. I am really excited about this publication.

As you know, there was no such thing before in my homeland and you give birth to

a new era of freedom of the press. It is of great importance to me and to my fellow

Cambodians, as His Excellency Yasushi Akashi stated: "The launching of a new

newspaper will broaden freedom of expression and enrich the diversity of views, thus

strengthening democracy."

I will save my income to afford the publication and my wife will love your newspaper

also, since she understands the language. I wish you great success.

- R.S. Battambang
