Hun Sen against Taiwanese consulate

Recommended Posts

Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday reiterated support for the One-China Policy by saying that although Taiwanese people are allowed to conduct business in the Kingdom, the government will not allow a consulate. Mr Hun Sen made the statement during a dinner with the Association of Khmer-Chinese in Cambodia in Phnom Penh.


He said people from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau must understand that Cambodia has always supported the One-China Policy since it was recognized by then Prince Norodom Sihanouk in the 1950s. “Under my leadership, I will continue to strongly support the One-China Policy,” Mr Hun Sen said. “You all have to support that.”


During the Chinese Civil War in the mid-20th century, communist forces led by Mao Zedong pushed the pro-democracy forces of Chiang Kai-Shek all the way to Taiwan. The war has since ended, but Taiwan has always presented itself as a sovereign state, separate from China. However, in 1972 China issued its One-China Policy, stating that Taiwan is part of China.

Okay then, there may be consequences though.

  • Cambodia-bound investment from Taiwan over the past six years totals about $568 million and most of that came in the past two years.
  • Tiawanese companies invested about $171 million in 2017 and $181 million in 2018.
  • There were 15 projects funded funded by Taiwan companies in 2018, a six-year high.

Dictators read from the same handbook. They sing the same songs, of which they are the harbingers of right and freedom. Sadly they are off key and forgot the true meanings of right and freedom.
