Phnom Penh (FN), June 19 – General Nem Sowath, the Director General of the General Department of Politics and Foreign Affairs, asserted that the inclusion of "win-win policy" and the history of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge regime in education is under consideration.

“This is my goal. I want these topics to be a part of the public' general knowledge by including them in the curriculum. I believe that teaching this information will provide optimism and identity to our national history," stated Nem Sowath in a press conference on Monday morning.

The Prime Minister Hun Sen’s win-win policy was created to bring reconciliation and peace to the country from 1998 after years of civil war.

The history of the murderous regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, as well as its overthrow, would serve as a reminder of the sacrifice and violence that the Cambodian people went through and testimony to their strength and perseverance.

“It will help clarify the real origins and the witnesses can provide insight to the next generation to live ethically and that I hope it will contribute enormously through learning from historical experience,” the general added.

Sok Touch, a history researcher, supports the idea to include these curriculums in educational programs to enlighten the awareness of disintegration adding that the depth of history from ancient to modern era should be taught in details.
