Phnom Penh (FN), Jan. 7 – Approximately 70,000 Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) members and supporters, on Monday morning, gathered at the Phnom Penh’s Olympic Stadium to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Kingdom’s liberation from Khmer Rouge regime on 7 January 1979.

The Cambodian people has named the 7-January-1979 their second birthdays. On this auspicious occasion and in response to sacred aspiration and confidence of the Cambodian people, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, head of the ruling CPP, announced that the Royal Government is implementing deeper and wide-ranging national agendas through its Rectangular Strategy Phase IV.

“The Royal Government opens wide frank dialogues with political parties, civil society, and progressive circles, aimed at gathering indiscriminately ideas, intellects, and human resource from every source to strand a conclusive force for national construction and development,” said Prime Minister Hun Sen.

“There has been a past issue, however, that we cannot allow it to repeat – national division that stems from ambitions of politicians who take people as tools to achieve personal interests, and neglect national destiny,” he added.
