PM Reveals a 48-Year Memorable Photo

Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen posted on his official Facebook page this morning two photos of him and a closest friend.

The first photo was taken 48 years ago, in 1971, with H.E. Gen. Sok Saroeun, current Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of National Defence, wrote Samdech Techo Hun Sen, adding that he was 19 years old at that time, while H.E. Gen. Sok Saroeun was 29 years old.

The other photo, he continued, was taken on Aug. 5, 2019, when he passed from 67 to 68 years old, and H.E. Gen. Sok Saroeun is 78 years old.

Even though the situation has changed in terms of politics, socio-economy, status, role, age and physical body, etc., our friendship and brotherhood have never changed, said the Premier. 48 years ago he was my commander, but in the past 40 years his rank is lower than mine. Friendship and brotherhood are not about position or properties, but rather an unchanging affection.

According to Samdech Techo Hun Sen, thanks to H.E. Gen. Sok Saroeun, he met with his wife, Samdech Kittiprittbandit Bun Rany Hun Sen 45 years ago and they became husband and wife with now 20 grand-children.
