HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam regretted that some contents of the remarks made by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the 18th Shangri-La Dialogue and on his Facebook page did not objectively reflect the historical truth, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lê Thị Thu Hằng has said.

She made the statement in response to reporters’ queries on Tuesday about the Singaporean Prime Minister's speech at the dialogue and the information posted on his personal website on May 31 saying Việt Nam had “invaded” and “occupied” Cambodia.

Việt Nam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs had discussed the issue with its Singaporean counterpart, she said.

The contribution and sacrifice of Việt Nam in the joint efforts with Cambodian people to end the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime had been widely recognised, Hằng said.

On November 16, 2018, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) issued a verdict on the crimes against humanity committed by the Khmer Rouge.

The ruling reflected the objective historical truth, enforcing justice and ensuring fair restitution for victims, and was welcomed by the international community and the United Nations, she said.

The recent accomplishments of ASEAN are the result of joint efforts by all member nations throughout the history of the association, the spokesperson said, adding that each member was deeply aware of the importance of strengthening intra-bloc solidarity based on mutual respect and common principles.

As an active and responsible member of ASEAN, Việt Nam will continue working with other members to build a strong community with a central role in the region, the spokesperson said. —VNS

Tea Banh dismisses Singapore PM’s statement as ‘untruthful’.

Defence Minister General Tea Banh and a CPP lawmaker have lashed out at Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for accusing Vietnamese troops of invading Cambodia to topple the Khmer Rouge regime in 1979.

In a letter posted on his official Facebook page on May 31 and sent to Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, Mr Lee expressed his condolences on the passing of former Thai Prime Minister General Prem Tinsulanonda.



. .
“His time as PM coincided with the Asean members (then five of us) coming together to oppose Vietnam’s invasion of Cambodia and the Cambodian government that replaced the Khmer Rouge,” Mr Lee wrote. “Thailand was on the frontline, facing Vietnamese forces across its borders with Cambodia. [Then] General Prem was resolute in not accepting this […]. This prevented the military invasion and regime change from being legitimised. It protected the security of other Southeast Asia countries, and decisively shape the course of the region.”

Mr Lee noted his predecessor and Gen Prem opposed the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia and denied legitimacy to Heng Samrin’s government in the 1980s.

Gen Banh, who returned from a security summit in Singapore on Monday night, said he spoke about Mr Lee’s statement with Singapore’s Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen.

At Phnom Penh International Airport, Gen Banh said he asked Mr Ng to inform Mr Lee to rectify the statement.

“He [Mr Lee] did not say the truth and his statement does not reflect history. It is not true because he said Vietnamese troops invaded Cambodia,” he said on Monday night. “We wish for him to make corrections. It is not true.”



. .
Gen Banh then questioned Mr Lee on why he did not refer to the United States’ bombing campaign of Cambodia as an invasion.

“If we talk about history, one thing he did not talk about was the Indochina war and how US troops dropped millions of bombs, invaded and occupied the region – why don’t you say something about that?” he said.

Gen Banh said Mr Lee’s statement was “unacceptable”, noting that if Heng Samrin’s forces did not ally with the Vietnamese, Cambodians would not have survived.

“We cannot accept what he said. Vietnamese volunteer troops came to liberate our people,” he said. “We still consider them as saviours – this means a lot for us.”

“January 7, 1979 was a second birthday; it is highly regarded by us,” Gen Banh added. “We are grateful for what they did to help us.”



CPP lawmaker Hun Many on Friday said he was “beyond surprised” over Mr Lee’s statement.

“Whether it was a realist geopolitical or national interest perspective of the moment, one should not overlook nor forget the atrocities and crimes against humanity, especially genocide that was committed by the Khmer Rouge Regime,” Mr Many said. “The world should not forget how much Cambodians suffered then. The world turned a blind eye on us Khmers. Close to three million innocent victims died at the hands of the Khmer Rouge.”

“While everyone was playing politics, Cambodians prayed [for help], we wanted to be saved from the genocidal regime of the Khmer Rouge,” he added. “The help came in the form of the CPP with assistance from our neighbouring country, Vietnam.”

Political analyst Lao Mong Hay yesterday said the government should file a diplomatic complaint against the Singaporean government.

“It would be more proper and more effective if our Foreign [Affairs] Minister was to summon the Singaporean ambassador to Cambodia to lodge our government’s protest about [Mr Lee’s] inappropriate and offensive remark,” Mr Mong Hay said.

Political analyst Leap Chanthavy earlier this week said Mr Lee’s statement was “disrespectful” toward Khmer Rouge victims.

“His view was inherited from his father former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew who was resolutely against the Vietnamese intervention,” Ms Chanthavy said. “Singapore regarded Vietnam as a mini hegemon who was a proxy of the Soviet Union in their endeavour to impose communism to the region.”

PM speech writer has to be more sensitive. 

 

Many times, what seems to be perfectly legitimate to some can be totally rubbish to another. That's how the reality works. A nicer word is called politics.

Ya man, calling a spade a spade does not always work well.

If stand up for truth, some will say got guts. Others say insensitive.

If wayang and beautify truth, some say no backbone, dare not say the truth, coward. Others say this is great statesmanship.

😁😂😂 Vietnam getting strong cos of trade wars. Wan to flex some muscles and test test ground with our little red dot to see how far it can go.

For me, truth stands the test of time. Vietnam can rewrite its history books, like Japan. But invasion is real.

Perhaps a short and sweet tribute for the departed like "He was a leader worthy of his country."

Vietnam, dun bully us.

Safe ride
Cheers

Firstly, I don't affiliate myself with any political party. Only policies that, in my view, work.

 

Of course, I like some politicians more than others, but no politician or person is always right. Not LKY, not LHL, not anybody.

 

What I cannot understand about the posts so far is why some are so quick to conclude that what LHL said is wrong/fake? Why is the statement that Vietnam has issued to be believed, over LHL?

bro....one word....Diplomacy! We all know what happened....the killings, the progroms but that was more than 3 decades ago! Those involved are now most likely dead....no need to exhume what had transpired. It would have sound better if it reads, 'Prem was a stalwart against forces of chaos and anarchy'. No need to remind others of their 'shameful' past as if the genocide is still happening.

Whatever it is..he could still have written a neutral speech and toed the lines. Controversial and grey areas we can skip, skip. We need friends rather than more frenemies. Why stir a hornets nest?

Everytime our ministers make diplo mistakes then we shout "dun bully" small country? I think not right.
