Open Letter to the Chinese Foreign Minister

Your concern, stated in a recent Xinhua news agency release, over attacks on Khmer

Rouge guerrillas by the government forces (SOC) is greatly appreciated. This shows

that you really want Cambodia to enjoy peace. But I wonder why you do not express

concern when the Khmer Rouge attack the government forces?

Do the Khmer Rouge actions not run counter to the Paris agreement, too?

Who has so far failed the most to comply with the agreement that they signed?

Perhaps it is about time you put pressure on your protege to join the peace process,

if you truly want the Cambodian people to achieve peace.

- May T., an angry citizen whose youth was shattered under the reign of terror

of your protégé
