Cambodia promotes ASEAN awareness among university students

Hor Namhong (M) speaking to Cambodian students during the seminar.

PHNOM PENH(Xinhua) - Some 3,000 Cambodian students from various universities in the kingdom took part in a national seminar on ASEAN awareness today at the capital's Diamond Island Theater.

Key speakers in the seminar were the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Hor Namhong, who represents Cambodia for the ASEAN security community, Commerce Minister Cham Prasidh, who represents the country for the ASEAN economic community, and Permanent Vice President of the Council for the Development of Cambodia Sun Chanthol, who represents the country for the ASEAN socio-cultural community.

"ASEAN is now a body that is more prestigious on international arena. ASEAN is playing very critical roles in terms of politics and economy," Hor Namhong said.

As the 2012 ASEAN chair, Cambodia would do all its best to integrate ASEAN into an ASEAN community by 2015 through narrowing the development gap between the old six ASEAN member states and new four ASEAN member states, he said.

Also, Cambodia would push to speed up the processes of ASEAN connectivity in infrastructures such as overland roads, water ways and airways, and the connectivity among institution-to-institution and people-to-people.

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was established in 1967 in Bangkok, Thailand. It groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Why is comrade Hor Nam Hong sitting with other Miniseries?

Comrade Hor Nam Hong murdered thousands of Khmer and was also in charge of the Camp Killings, shouldn't he be sitting in the KTR along with those most responsible?
