Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 2 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen called on former opposition supporters to return to Cambodia to witness the national achievements, celebrate the traditional Khmer New Year and 2023 SEA Games hosted by Cambodia, and stop believing the propaganda made by the opposition party.

The premier spoke during a meeting with more than 1,000 Grade A high school students, on Thursday morning (Feb 2) at OCIC, Phnom Penh.

The premier’s appeal came after he received information from former opposition supporters that they did not dare to return home as they will be arrested upon standing on Cambodian soil.

"This is Cambodia, a country for all. You will not be arrested without the arrest warrant. Please return home. Stop believing in the propaganda,” the premier clarified.
