MESSAGE

FROM

HIS MAJESTY

PREAH BAT SAMDECH PREAH BAROMNEATH NORODOM SIHAMONI

KING OF CAMBODIA

TO THE

PHNOM PENH POST
 

On the occasion of my election as King of Cambodia by the Throne Council I would

like to send warm greetings and good wishes to the management and readers of the

Phnom Penh Post.

My unexpected accession to the ancient throne of Cambodia and the retirement of my

august father His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk are events which mark a new era in

our ancient monarchy. As Constitutional monarch I shall endeavor to follow the example

of my august father and observe strict neutrality as far as political affairs are

concerned.

I shall take care of those of my compatriots who are the less privileged of our Nation

just as my august father has done.

My enthronization takes place as we prepare to celebrate my august father's 82nd

Birthday Anniversary and I would like to avail myself of this opportunity to pay

a most respectful and filial homage to His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk, artisan

of Cambodia's nationhood, father of her independence and builder of modern Cambodia.

We, Khmers, are eternally grateful to His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk for completely

dedicating his life and soul to the service of Cambodia and its people. We wish His

Majesty good health and longevity.
