Phnom Penh (FN), Jan. 14 – Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen urged journalists to embrace a new slogan, “do not violate rights of other people, do not distort the truth” in order to enhance their professionalism.

The premier presided over the annual meeting with journalists on Tuesday evening, 14 January, attended by nearly 5,000 journalists at Diamond Island, organized by the Ministry of Information.
