Not 'inferior'

The Editor,

Thank you very much for your article "Man to lead women to

Beijing... of course" which was published in the Phnom Penh Post (May 5-18,

1995). This article was very informative and deserved to be read. However, one

point needs to be clarified.

The article quoted my words as follows: "If

we send (an) inferior woman, it means we don't give importance to the meeting...

Only top leaders will attend the meeting, it doesn't matter if they are men or

women." End of quote.

In fact, I did not say the words "inferior women".

What I said was "If we send someone from the low level official (either men or

women), it means we don't give importance to the meeting... Only top leaders

will attend the meeting, it doesn't matter if they are men or

women."

Therefore in order to make the said article more accurate, I

would suggest you to make the rectification accordingly.

Looking forward

to having your best assistance in serving women's causes.

- H.E. Keat Sukun, Secretary of State, Secretariat of State for Women's

Affairs
