Phnom Penh (FN), Nov. 21 – No countries in the world but only Cambodia survives after the withdrawals of foreign-backed forces, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen addressed Thursday at the inauguration of a new building at the Royal Academy of Cambodia.

“There is no governments in this world survived after the withdrawal of foreign troops. Lon Nol failed after America withdrew aids; South Vietnam collapsed after the US withdrew; Afghanistan president was hanged after the Soviet withdrew,” said the premier.

“For Cambodia, Vietnam aided us. After Vietnam withdrew, Cambodia’s Administration under Heng Samrin and Hun Sen continued to stand firmly,” he added.
