Phnom Penh (FN), Mar. 16 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen underlined that no matter how much money is spent, the Royal Palace in Siem Reap must be rebuilt.

The premier spoke at the graduation of more than 4,000 students of Build Bright University, held on Thursday (Mar. 16) at Diamond Island Convention and Exhibition Center.

The over-70-year-old Siem Reap Royal Residence has left great historical memories with the Royal Crusade for Independence (from France), launched by the late king-father of Cambodia Norodom Sihanouk, after his campaign in France, Canada, the U.S., Japan and Thailand, according to a royal message of queen mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk dated 14 March 2023.
