Cambodia achieves significant development since fall of DK regime: ruling party

PHNOM PENH, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) — Cambodia has achieved significant national development in all fields in the past 33 years since the fall of the Democratic Kampuchea, or known as Khmer Rouge regime, said the president of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) on Saturday.

“Since the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime, we have started to restore the nation from scratch,” Chea Sim said in speech in commemoration of the 33rd anniversary of Jan. 7 victory day.

“Over the past thirty three years, Cambodia has transformed from being a land of deaths to a land of development full of energy and hope,” said Chea Sim, who is also the president of the Senate.

Cambodia that was plagued with protracted war, division, violence, destruction and insult has now become a motherland of peace, stability, unity, democracy and development, he said.

Meanwhile, Chea Sim said the ruling CPP would continue to strengthen and expand cooperation with all political forces and circles with patriotic wills in order to construct the nation and defend the motherland.

The commemoration, held at the CPP’s headquarters, was also presided over by Prime Minister Hun Sen, the party’s Vice- President, and President of National Assembly Heng Samrin, the party’s Honorary President. It was attended by approximately 12, 000 supporters.

Cambodia saw Jan. 7 as the victory day over the Democratic Kampuchea regime. On Jan. 7, 1979, the troops of Kampuchea United Front for National Salvation with the cooperation and support from the Vietnamese troops had toppled the DK regime after it had controlled the country for three years, eight months and 20 days.

During the period, over three millions of Cambodian compatriots died from execution, disease, starvation and overwork, Chea Sim said.

However, critics said Jan. 7 marked an anniversary of an invasion by Vietnamese troops in Cambodia.
