Maj-Hun Manet, eldest son of Prime Minister Hun Sen and Deputy Commander of Royal Cambodian Army, has made a visit to Phnom Trop, the scene of the most heavy fighting between Cambodian and Thai troops from 4-7 February.

His delegation arrived at the Cambodian camp site at 10:30 a.m yesterday, Thursday 10th February. During a speech to the troops, he told them that he will he sacrifice everything to defend Cambodian sovereignty and territorial integrity against the Thai invasion.

At the base he met with Gen. Chea Dara, commander of the Preah Vihear Operations and Gen. Yim Pim, commander of the 8th Division, who briefed Gen. Hun Manet about the military situations and the bravely of Cambodian troops who fought fiercely against the Thai troops in the areas of Chak Chreng, Phnom Trop, Ta Thav, Ta Sem and Veal Entry.

Gen. Hun Manet had also conveyed a message of congratulations from his father, Prime Minister Hun Sen and his mother, Lady Bun Rany, to the troops for their sacrifices to defend the nation against foreign aggression. After the meeting, Hun Manet had lunch with the troops and local commanders before leaving the front line.

A Thai newspaper recently reported that Hun Manet was injured during the fight on Sunday 6th February. With this visit and the picture, it seem that he is uninjured.
