Politics of TVK

The Editor,

Your story, TVK "between the devil and the deep blue sea", on page 9 of

your May 17-30 issue Volume 5/10, quotes me incorrectly as saying that: "It

would be impossible for TVK to become independent as long as it was owned by the

government."

In fact, I said that "in the current context with four parties in the coalition

ruling the country, it is near impossible to please all four sides, especially with

limitation in skill, tact and resources at the disposal of TVK. But we can minimize

the criticism by being more professional".

Thank you for your consideration in publishing this clarification in your next edition.
- Khieu Kanharith, Secretary of State for Information, The Kingdom of Cambodia.
