Phnom Penh (FN), Aug. 5 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen affirmed that the intention to change date of birth to actual date, 5 August 1952, is to ensure the next generation know his actual date of birth.

The premier spoke while receiving an honorary doctorate degree from RUPP on Friday morning (Aug 5).

"My actual birthday was on Tuesday, 5 August 1952. I just correct my birthday. Critics said I made other people busy with my own business. However, it's important for the next generation to know my actual date of birth,” the premier underlined.
