My participation in this General Assembly is in the context that Cambodian Nation is enjoying the dividends of peace, stability and rapid development which had never been before in her modern history.

Cambodia is a successful case of a war-torn country which had succeeded in making a complete and prideful transformation.

 

Previously infamous for its killing fields, an unstable region caused by armed conflicts and dangerous mine disposals, an economically backward country mired in poverty and food insecurity, Cambodia now enjoys full peace, and has become a popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia (the WORLD`S BEST TOURIST DESTINATION r.n); a food exporter; an outstanding performer in poverty reduction and improvement in social indicators. Cambodia is recognized as one of the world’s fast-growing economies, which recently has successfully graduated from its status as a low-income country to a lower-middle income country, owing to its high economic growth at around 7% per annum over the past two decades.

PHOTO DOSSIER GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

 


H.E. António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General welcomes H.E. Prime Minister of Cambodia Samdech HUN SEN-the GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

 

Notably known for its armed struggle for the power and changes of government, Cambodia is now governed by the rule of law and firmly respects the multi-party liberal democracy, with regular, free and fair elections, held to enable its people to choose the country’s leadership.

 

In the general election of Cambodia’s Sixth Legislature of the National Assembly in July, nearly 7 million Cambodians, or 83.02% of the total registered voters, cast their votes and decided on their political choices freely and without any coercion, threat or violence.

Twenty registered political parties have competed in the election which clearly demonstrated a legitimate representation of pluralist politics and reflected what thousands of domestic and international observers described as a stable democratic process in Cambodia and as a free, fair, and credible election.

 

By their votes, Cambodians reaffirmed their desire for peace, stability and long-lasting sustainable development.

Indeed, the free choice of the Cambodian people and the legitimate result of this election is not a subject for question or debate.

 

Some external circles, who have fed on ambition to interfere in domestic affairs of Cambodia, still fail to see the quality and integrity of our election process by issuing statements against or attacking the election outcome.

Such actions are a serious assault on the will of the Cambodian people.

  • Madam President!

I would like to draw the attention of all UN members to the vitality of the United Nations Charter.

It depends on all of us to provide a proper respect for this crucial document by avoiding the interference, damaging, or disrupting sovereignty of an independent state.

We are heartedly regretful to highlight the fact that human rights nowadays have become “a mission to impose civilization” for some powerful nations or, perhaps, as their operating standards as the pretext for the interference under the name of political rights protection.

 

As a result, the imposition of unilateral sanctions has become a popular weapon of powerful nations in managing their international politics, which is completely driven by geopolitical agendas.

This is nothing but a use of the brutal force of a particular state to impose its will on other sovereignty states.

 

In a world, where the eras of imperialism and colonialism became the history, we have to acknowledge that not all nations in this General Assembly shall follow the governing model of any country.

 

Big countries should not attempt to install their administrative system on other small countries, because those small countries also possess sovereignty and legitimate aspiration to maintain their own identities. In the modern-days of interdependence, such an old style coercive mindset should be put to rest.

Together, both big and small countries, must respect one another and uphold the rules of the international law and the Charter of the United Nations.

  • Madam President!

Currently, the world is facing severe instabilities while the threats to peace are coming in many forms, more than what we have witnessed in the past 25 years.

We are all living in a world faced with fragility, unpredictability, complicated changes, as the challenges are coming from various fronts, including the increase in persistent conflicts and unprecedented humanitarian crises.

We are deeply concerned by the tensions made by a first world class superpower in the diplomatic circle and by the conflicts happening in many places thank to the interference by this superpower.

We are also deeply concerned by the rush decisions made by this superpower to urgently withdraw from major international agreements that threaten the core legitimacy of international legal order.

This unilateral actions have undermined the state-to-state relationships and caused tension in the international community.

Yet, what puts the most pressure is direct attack on multilateralism.

Undoubtedly, in our globalized world, all things are connected. if we begin to adhere to the protectionist policy, unilateralism and trade war, we are closing the door by not welcoming any trade and investment opportunities which have provided prosperity to our countries, both small and big ones, for many decades.

Eventually, we all are poorer; our economies will decline; financial capital will shrink and the ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as, addressing the challenges caused by climate change would be seriously affected.

Those factors will make poor countries suffer prolonged poverty, and thus we are more vulnerable to the dangerous ideology of terrorism, extremism, and regional conflicts.

Cambodia, as a small economy, believes in the interests of the rule-based international cooperation. As a matter of fact, we all have been prospering because of the globalization.

We all are thus convinced that the global trade should not be hindered by the imposition of unilateral tariffs; yet it should be enhanced and supported through the adherence to conductive policies for trade and investment, as well as, the provision of special preferential treatment to developing countries.

Stability and diversification in the financial sector need to be further encouraged to promote innovation and development.

All in all, we need to jointly maintain and strengthen ‘’multilateralism”.

In fact, peace without development is not sustainable. In this context, “Sustainable Development Goals” of the United Nations play a pivotal role in guiding toward prosperity for the people. Cambodia views the SDGs as an important opportunity to mobilize efforts in achieving poverty reduction, as well as, sustainable and inclusive development.

The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) soon will approve “Cambodia Sustainable Development Goals (CSDGs)” which has been fully localized, and we will use those goals to shape our medium and long-term policies and plans for Cambodia.

Moreover, the conflict prevention is precondition for a long-lasting peace. The UN peacekeeping forces play a vital leading role in these efforts. As a result, Cambodia greatly welcomes the vision of H.E. António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, on peace-building and peace-keeping, particularly further paying continued attention to the conflict prevention.

Cambodia is a consistent supporter of the architecture of peace and security of the United Nations.

For instance, for the last 12 years, Cambodia has sent thousands of Blue Helmet forces to join peace-keeping missions under the umbrella of the United Nations.

However, peace-keeping is facing unprecedented challenges since the non-state actors have waged rebellion wars against our peace-keeping forces, which have caused many lives and disabilities.

We are sincerely indebted to the sacrifice of the UN peace-keeping heroes. Nonetheless, their death and sacrifice have not distorted our commitment to further contributing to the cause of this great mission.

Another severe and complicated threat which is the barriers to the long-lasting peace is terrorism.

They have disintegrated communities, worsened the conflicts and weakened the stability of the whole region. Currently, the battles against terrorism have become even more complex and modernized since the terrorists are turning to the cyberspace for their malevolent operation.

Profoundly, the cross-border nature of terrorism requires us to build a multilateral cooperation with concerted coordination, including “countermeasures” and “preventive measures”.

Addressing climate change is another key element for the success of the 2030 Agenda, which requires urgent and focused attention from the global community.

The fundamentals for action on climate change are undoubtedly rested upon the Paris Agreement.

In this spirit, Cambodia will provide full support to the Secretary-General of the United Nations to organize the Climate Summit next year to foster the inspiration to further address climate change.

  • Madame President!

Finally, I would like to emphasize that Cambodia fully support the UN’s global leadership, and commits to implementing our shared responsibility to build a peaceful and equitable human society who enjoys sustainable and inclusive development.

Thank you for your attention!

The history of the National Museum of Cambodia goes back to the early 20th century.

 It was inaugurated on 13 April 1920, under the patronage of King Sisowath and is home to one of the world’s greatest collections of Khmer cultural artifacts including sculpture, ceramics and ethnographic objects from the prehistoric, pre-Angkorian, Angkorian and post-Angkorian periods.

 

King Sisowath statue adorns the center of Phnom Penh.

He was the creator of National Museum of Cambodia.

  The Museum promotes awareness, understanding and appreciation of Cambodia‘s heritage through the presentation, conservation, safekeeping, interpretation and acquisition of Cambodian cultural material.

 

It aims to educate and inspire its visitors with a humongous collection of huge Buddhas, Vishnu`s, and Shiva’s, cryptic and poetic inscription fragments, intimidating weaponry, and elegant vases.

The museum carries a remarkably thorough vision of Cambodia’s art, from the pre-history to the post-Angkor periods.

DISCOURS POUR

DJIBOUTI: LA CAPITALE DE CULTURE ET TOURISME

S.E. PRESIDENT ISMAIL OMAR GUELLEH

 

 

 Allocution du Président de la République lors de la cérémonie de remise de distinction, Djibouti capitale mondiale du tourisme et de la culture.

C’est avec beaucoup de joie et beaucoup de fierté que j’accueille cette distinction.

A travers moi, c’est Djibouti tout en entier et sa population que vous venez d’honorer. Je tiens donc tout d’abord Monsieur Le Président, Professuer Dr. Anton Caragea, au nom du peuple Djiboutien, à vous remercier personnellement aussi bien que l’académie que vous dirigez pour cette marque de confiance et d’estime que vous nous témoignez.

Cette distinction Monsieur Le Président, aussi méritoire qu’elle soit, nous la prenons ni comme une consécration, ni comme une récompense. Mais comme un encouragement. Un encouragement à persévérer sur la voie que nous nous sommes tracée dans le développement du tourisme.

C’est toujours gratifiant de se voir soutenu dans ses efforts, surtout par une institution comme la votre qui a toujours défendu une vision du tourisme et de la culture centrée sur l’humain.

 

Mesdames et messieurs

Il y a différentes façons de définir et de percevoir Djibouti et son peuple.

Certains parlent de nous comme d’un caillou au milieu du désert.

D’autres, sans doute nostalgiques d’une époque coloniale pourtant révolue, nous réduisent à une pancarte sur laquelle est écrite « Territoire des Afars et des Issas ».

Les plus innovants nous identifient à une base géostratégique pour les puissances militaires.

Mais heureusement pour nous, Mesdames et messieurs, il se trouve encore beaucoup de personnes de par le monde qui ne nous réduisent pas à ces clichés et à ces étiquettes anachroniques.

Pour nous et pour tous ces citoyens du Monde qui ont eu l’occasion de séjourner dans notre pays, Djibouti, c’est cette terre de rencontres et d’échanges aux confluents de toutes les routes, maritimes, terrestres et aériennes.

Pour nous et pour tous ces citoyens du Monde, Djibouti c’est une histoire et même une préhistoire que la géologie, la géographie et l’archéologie ne cessent de raconter à travers les temps et les âges.

Ceux qui se sont émerveillés devant la beauté primitive du Lac Abbé, ceux qui ont accompagné une caravane sur la banquise du Lac Assal, ceux là ont le ressenti de ce qu’est Djibouti.

Et c’est sans doute parce qu’ils ont ressenti cette magie d’un espace envoutant que Tazief et Rimbaud ont parlé en leur temps « d’un livre de géologie à ciel ouvert » et « d’un paysage lunaire ».

 

 

Monsieur le Président, mesdames et messieurs

Nous nous réjouissons donc aujourd’hui de cette reconnaissance internationale de notre pays comme « Capitale mondiale de la Culture et du Tourisme ».

Notre pays renferme des sites qui valent bien des détours. J’ai cité tout à l’heure le Lac Assal et le Lac Abbé, mais j’aurai pu citer les fresques préhistoriques d’Abourma ou encore la forêt primaire du Day.

Je pourrais citer aussi l’extraordinaire biodiversité de notre flore et de notre faune qui comprend des espèces endémiques comme le Francolin de Djibouti ou la gazelle Beira.

Je pourrais également mentionner l’extraordinaire richesse culturelle de nos communautés. Ces nomades enracinés dans leurs territoires. Mais aussi ces citoyens qui sont les fruits d’un melting-pot historique, et qui fait de Djibouti un havre de tolérance et du vivre-ensemble.

 

 

Monsieur le Président, mesdames et messieurs,

Dans notre stratégie de développement de notre pays, nous sommes très sensibles au bienfait du tourisme, à son impact sur la croissance, à son rôle dans la lutte contre la pauvreté. En une décennie et grâce à tous les efforts engagés pour augmenter son attractivité, notre pays a plus que quadruplé la proportion des touristes.

 

Naturellement, le Gouvernement encourage cette dynamique créatrice d’emplois pour nos jeunes et génératrice de devises pour notre économie. A tel point que nous n’avons pas hésité à ériger l’industrie touristique comme un des piliers économiques de la vision 2035.

Dans la compétition mondiale effrénée qui anime le secteur du tourisme, nous voulons rester lucides pour éviter de tomber dans certains écueils. Nous ne voulons pas sacrifier au tout-tourisme des territoires et des écosystèmes que nous savons fragiles.

Nous ne souhaitons pas bâtir ce secteur encore bourgeonnant sur un modèle économique qui pille et torpille l’équilibre écologique des territoires et des populations.

Face aux promesses court-termistes et consuméristes d’une industrie touristique qui souvent dégrade, pollue et détruit, nous voulons sortir du piège manichéen du tout-tourisme ou son contraire, pour une solution responsable qui intègre l’industrie touristique dans un schéma de développement durable.

Djibouti a fait le choix d’un tourisme de niche, qui met en relation les individus, les cultures et les civilisations.

Le choix d’un tourisme qui a un rôle important à jouer dans le dialogue des cultures et dans le vivre ensemble. Le choix de l’équilibre entre nos objectifs de développement et l’indispensable protection de nos patrimoines sociaux, culturels et environnementaux.

 

C’est un choix difficile dont les dividendes, bien que prometteuses, sont pour l’heure encore maigres. Mais un choix que mon pays assume par devoir d’équité et de justice vis-à-vis des générations futures de notre pays.

Je vous remercie de votre attention!
