Prime Minister Hun Sen today lashed out at former opposition leader Sam Rainsy for failing to hold mass demonstration against him during his trip overseas.
Speaking to about 6,700 garment workers in Kandal province’s Muk Kampoul district, Mr Hun Sen said that Mr Rainsy was a liar who cheated the people.
“The more he [Mr Rainsy] tells lies, the more he fails. The mass demonstration he has called for attracted a small number of people,” he said.
“It clearly shows that he is the leader who has always cheated the people,” Mr Hun Sen said.
Mr Hun Sen said that his trip to the 12th Asia-Europe Meeting in Brussels and stops in Turkey and Switzerland last week bore fruitful results, especially on cooperation. He held meetings with other world leaders and boosted bilateral ties.
He said that Cambodia will host the 13th ASEM in Phnom Penh in 2020.
