I am deeply saddened with the recent news of the stampede occurred on the last day of the Water Festival in Cambodia.
I would like to express my sincere condolences for this tragic disaster to the people of Cambodia and my respects to those who died in this stampede. I wish a fast recovery for those who were injured in this unfortunate incident.
Our university, staff and students have generously donated cash to the bank accounts provided at Bayon TV station for the families who are affected.
I hope to see the people of Cambodia and the government of Cambodia to remain strong, united and resilient and overcome this unexpected incident as soon as possible.
