On Tuesday, Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen said on his Facebook page that the number of people celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year in Cambodia is increasing.

Cambodians now celebrate three New Year celebrations annually, including New Year’s Eve, Chinese Lunar New Year, and Cambodian New Year, the Prime Minister said.

Hun Sen said the fact that more and more people are celebrating the Chinese New Year is a gift of peace in Cambodia, which gives people the freedom to choose the celebration of festivals according to their traditions.

The Prime Minister also posted a 27-year-old picture of himself and his spouse on the Great Wall in Beijing.
