Asia-Pacific Summit 2019 begins today
Nearly 2,000 people, including 800 delegates from 48 countries, will today attend the Asia-Pacific Summit 2019 in Phnom Penh, where they will learn about how the Kingdom was able to end decades of civil war.
Ek Tha, vice-chairman of the Government Spokespersons Unit, yesterday said foreign senior government officials and parliamentarians from the 48 countries have confirmed their attendance.
Mr Tha added Cambodia is a suitable place to host the summit because of the Kingdom’s history of reconciliation and promotion of peace.
“The Kingdom was chosen to host the Asia-Pacific Summit because organisers noted that Cambodia was torn by civil war for 40 years,” he said. “Cambodians hate war and they want peace and development.”
“The organisers saw the Kingdom ended the war under the leadership of Prime Minister HE through his win-win policy in 1998,” Mr Tha added. “At the end of 2018, Prime Minister HE led a delegation to attend the Asia-Pacific Summit in Kathmandu…organisers understood that the Cambodian government was committed to maintaining peace, stability and sustainable development.”
The summit is co-hosted by the Kingdom in conjunction with the Universal Peace Federation, while the International Conference of Asian Political Parties, the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace and the Asian Cultural Council aided with coordination. The summit will last until Thursday.
Mr HE and top foreign leaders are scheduled to deliver speeches tomorrow under the theme of “Addressing the critical challenges of our times: Peace, reconciliation, independence, mutual prosperity and universal values”.
