…………………………………………………

Unfortunately, more than 35 years after the invasion of Cambodia since 07 January 1979 by Vietnamese troops, and more than 23 years after Paris Peace Agreement of October 23, 19991, khmer people did not see this cancellation of the bilateral Treaties of 1979, 1982, 1983, 1985. On the other hand, they lived the forced adoption of the additive bilateral Treaty 2005, under threats of Hun Sen, to validate old unequal and unjust treaties to perpetuate Vietnamese colonization and territorial annexation of Cambodia. Under these treaties and ensuing laws, decrees, and bilateral administrative measures…, Viet Nam has trampled the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Cambodia as if the Paris agreement of 23 October 1991 did not exist. The leaders of these two countries scorn the Cambodian people, manipulating public opinion nationally and internationally, in violation of the Paris Peace Agreement, of which Cambodia and the Viet Nam were signatories. Truong Van Thong, spokesman for the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh has falsified the history of Cambodia saying Kampuchea Krom (or Cochin China) with an area of 68965km2, has always been belonged to Viet Nam, and that, historically, this territory was never ceded by France to Viet Nam, on June 04, 1949…! On July 08, 2014, a thousand Cambodians leaded by associations of Khmer Kampuchea Krom, of students and intellectuals…, protested in front of the Embassy of Viet Nam in Phnom Penh! The Khmer people, and not a handful of extremist Khmer, consider unacceptable this falsification of Khmer History and openly consider thief Prime Minister Hun Sen as a dictator and traitor to the fatherland, and Viet Nam as colonizing imperialist State. Indeed, throughout its history, Viet Nam imposed Vietnamization of names of Khmers living in Kampuchea krom by choosing Thach, Nguyen, Truong, Chau, Muong… to destroy their original identities and to better control them geographically, by changing the names of 21 khmer provinces for Vietnamese names… Viet Nam destroyed khmer culture and civilization such as music, theatre and Buddhist religion… There are still about 600 Khmer pagodas in Kampuchea Krom, that managed to maintain practice of Buddhist religion, language and Khmer tradition included marriage, waters and lights festivals in which Khmer Krom People still continue to organize pirogues racing… At the beginning of the 21e century, khmer people want to live free, independent and non-colonized, exactly, as wanted Vietnamese people of 20e century, fighting against French and Americans.

The cancellation of these treaties would completely finalized in 1993, after Cambodia had had its King, Government and other Institutions such as National Assembly, Senate… in accordance with its Constitution. To regain independence and defend the territorial integrity, the Khmer people had no other choice but to deliver a war of liberation: the Khmer people will have to hunt all traitors, and this, by all means, in accordance with the Paris Peace Agreement, the Charter of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights, rights of peoples to decolonization. They must not accept any done deal and the shameless falsification of history of Cambodia!

The international community should not be surprised if Khmer people will rise against the neo-colonialist Viet Nam under the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights and the rights of peoples. Because it is the rebellion of the Cambodian people legitimized by the United Nations under the Paris agreement of 23 October 1991!

At his final victory, the Transitional National Council will declare the cancellation of treaties 1979-1982-1983-19885 as well as the additive Treaty in 2005, consider as illegal all 375 to 1000 border posts demarcating the common border of 1270 km, made from these Cambodia-Vietnamese treaties. Under the Geneva Conference of 1954 on Indochina and the Paris Peace Agreement of 23 October 1991, the Transitional National Council will submit all the problems of borders to the international community, based on the map filed by Cambodia to the United Nations following its membership to this Organization following its independence from November 9, 1953.

Paris, 18 July 2014.
