The country is confidently moving forward on the path of peace, democracy and development, and is enhancing its reputation in the international arena, he added.

Hun Sen affirmed that the country forever remembers the bravery of soldiers of the Kampuchea United Front for National Salvation and the heroic Vietnamese volunteer soldiers who had fought to topple the genocidal regime and save the Cambodian nation.  

Celebration events were also held at many agencies and units across provinces and cities nationwide on the day. In addition, many groups of Cambodians organized commemorative activities in their own ways via gatherings, meetings, and parties.

On the social network Facebook, in the past few days, many Cambodian users have updated their new avatars highlighting the victory celebration message.
