Mrs. Eat Sophea, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, H. E Mr. Ung Sean, Ambassador of Cambodia to Nepal and other high-ranking officials of the Royal Government of Cambodia.

Earlier this morning, the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister visited the Win-Win Memorial Monument in Phnom Penh. The Memorial is constructed to commemorate the day when Cambodia “successfully ended its protracted civil war and fully achieved total peace and stability as a result of the Win-Win Policy” of the Cambodian Prime Minister H. E. Samdech Hun Sen. The policy was a strategy aimed at dismantling the Khmer Rouge’s political-military organisation and achieve harmony and reconciliation in the Cambodian society after the civil war. As an effort to establish peace and reconciliation, the former rebels were given three types of guarantees by the state: namely, the guarantee of physical and life security, the guarantee of continued employment for livelihood, and the guarantee of protection of all kinds of private property. Cambodia celebrates 29 December as the Win-Win Policy Day, to mark the declaration of the achievement of peace and stability on 29 December 1998.

During all these programmes, the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister was accompanied by his spouse Mrs. Radhika Shakya, Foreign Minister Mr. Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, Members of Parliament, senior office bearers of Government of Nepal, Nepal’s Ambassador to Cambodia Dr. Khaga Nath Adhikari, business community and other members of his delegation.
