Vietnamese relevance

The Editor,

I wonder if your correspondents, Sody Lay and Rusden Quinn (PP Post, Nov 21-Dec

4) presume to speak on behalf of all Khmers. As they seem to suggest, however, it

is probably for other Cambodians to reflect on the relevance of their view of history

to contemporary Cambodia.

For those of us "Westerners" trying hard to understand Cambodia, perhaps

Lay and Quinn could cite one or two specific current major issues in relation to

Vietnam or the Vietnamese people which are having an impact on Cambodia. They may

also wish to suggest how a modern democratic nation State should best handle these

issues.
