Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen of the Kingdom of Cambodia has condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.

What happened in Sri Lanka and in New Zealand (Christchurch terror attack) is a lesson for Cambodia to continue to manage thoroughly the use of weapons, underlined the Cambodian Premier at the graduation ceremony of over 2,000 new graduates of the National University of Management (NUM) here this morning.

Too much freedom in using weapons is not the people’s happiness, Samdech Techo Hun Sen added.

“The Royal Government and people of Cambodia express heartfelt condolences to the Government and people of Sri Lanka, especially the bereaved families of those who lost their lives in the despicable bombing attacks in Sri Lanka on April 21, 2019,” said the statement.

The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) condemns in the strongest term this senseless and deplorable act of violence, underlined the statement, adding that the RGC is firmly committed to the fight against terrorism and extremism in all its forms and manifestations.

“The Royal Government and people of Cambodia stands in solidarity with the Government and people of Sri Lanka at this difficult moment and pray for speedy recovery of the injured victims,” said the statement released.

Sri Lanka was rocked on Sunday by a series of devastating bombings targeting Christian churches and hotels, claiming hundreds of lives and injuring several hundreds of victims.
