Win-Win Memorial is a Symbol of Peace in Cambodia, Says PM

Cambodian people this morning celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Termination of Civil War in Cambodia and the Successful Implementation of Win-Win Policy (Dec. 29, 1998-Dec. 29, 2023), and the 5th Anniversary of the Construction of Win-Win Memorial (Dec. 29, 2018-Dec. 29, 2023).

The event, held at the Win-Win Memorial in Phnom Penh, was presided over by Prime Minister Samdech Moha Borvor Thipadei Hun Manet.

In his remarks, the Premier said the Win-Win Memorial is a symbol of all Cambodians and a symbol of peace in Cambodia.

“It was built for all. It is a repository of knowledge and a repository of historical documents which highlight various events in Cambodia, from the stage of progress to destruction and towards progress again,” he underlined.

This monument will remind our younger generations about the history and facts of Cambodia’s peace-seeking process, he added.

Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet attributed the success of the Win-Win policy to mutual trust, recalling the policy’s three key factors: guarantee of life and survival, guarantee of career and occupation, and guarantee of property ownership, which build trust of the Khmer Rouge forces on the government.

Now peace benefits all, including those criticising the Royal Government’s efforts to maintain peace, the Prime Minister underlined.

The Win-Win Memorial is located on an 8-hectare plot of land in front of Morodok Techo National Stadium in Ly Yong Phat development area in Sangkat Prek Tasek, Khan Chroy Changvar, Phnom Penh.

Different programmes, ranging from exposition of achievements of ministries and institutions to trade fair and entertainment programme, have been prepared to cheer the commemoration which will last until Dec. 31 night, along with the New Year countdown.
