Phnom Penh (FN), May 2 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen shared four recommendations on the occasion of receiving the Honorary Title “Patron” of the World Fellowship of Buddhists (WFB) and “Honorary Doctorate in Humanities” from the Universitas Negeri Padang of Indonesia, held on Tuesday (May 2) at Wat Phnom Cultural and Historical Site in Phnom Penh.

The four recommendations are as follows:

First, encourages more development initiatives that connect Buddhist civilization around the globe to promote education, spread and publish the Buddha's doctrines for educational institutions, think tanks, Buddhist institutions as well as Buddhists, and universities can input these values into education and research programs.

Second, we need to promote closer practical cooperation among Buddhist countries in the Mekong region and around the world to spread the values and philosophies of Buddhism that lead to justice, unity, mutual respect, tolerance, and the peaceful coexistence of humanity.

Third, based on the commitment of the 6th General Assembly of the WFB held in Phnom Penh in 1961 under the high leadership of queen Sisowath Monivong Kossamak Nearirath Serey Vathana and Cambodian late king father Norodom Sihanouk, called on the world Buddhist community to continue to work closely with the government, state institutions, and civil society organizations to end wars, hatred, violence and any acts that destroy humanity.

Fourth, as Buddhism is the official religion, we shall not forget the religious harmony that exists in the kingdom, in particular Islam and Christianity.
