Former King Sihanouk Will Not Return to Cambodia

A Royal palace official said on condition to remain anonymous that former King Sihanouk will not return to Cambodia, but he did not specify the reason. The announcement was made a few days after Prince Norodom Sirivudh, Funcinpec party's secretary general and and co-Minister of Interior said Saturday that former King Sihanouk would accompany his son, King Sihamoni who will return to Cambodia on November 6.

King Sihamoni left for Beijing on October 25 to visit his King father who is in Beijing for medical treatment.

The people who follow the news were happy to hear about the good news thinking this will stop the tension between the border activists and the government on border issues.

Mr. Khieu Kanharith, on Saturday said that the local TV stations would stop their broadcasts of the documents on the history of border issues.

He cannot be reached for comment on news that the former King would not return to Cambodia.

The Royal palace official said that it seems like the former King does not want to be the mediator in the signing of the Supplemental border treaty with Vietnam.
