ROYAL LETTER
King Father Norodom Sihanouk has hailed Prime Minister Hun Sen, Senate President Chea Sim and National Assembly President Heng Samrin for attaining the rank of five-star general in the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, a rank awarded to them by King Norodom Sihamoni last week. “I and the Queen Mother offer warm praises for this promotion, which is befitting your renown as supreme nationalists and extremely good, clever and able leaders who received major successes in every field,” Sihanouk said in a letter dated December 23, adding that the three had raised Cambodia’s prestige. “May you receive additional major successes forever, and may you be blessed with the four Buddhist blessings,” he added.
