Cambodian PM: Politics Has No Single Standard

Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, this afternoon emphasised that politics does not have a single standard, only sport does.

The Premier reiterated the remark at the closing ceremony of Cambodia Scouts’ Conference, organised at the Institute of Technology of Cambodia in Phnom Penh.

Samdech Techo Hun Sen recalled that from 1970 to 1975, Lon Nol occupied the seat at the United Nations because, as explained, at that time the Lon Nol regime was in control of Phnom Penh capital.

“But, from 1979 to 1991, it was interpreted differently. The capital was under our control, but they did not give us the UN seat,” he added.

Therefore, Samdech Techo Hun Sen underlined, politics has no single standard as it is generally attached with benefits. “I still insist that only sport has single standard, politics does not,” he said.
