Cambodia To Mark 65th Independence Day Tomorrow

Cambodia is going to celebrate the 65th anniversary of national independence from France on Nov. 9 (1953-2018), under the royal presidency of His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni.

On the occasion, the monarch will light the victory flame at the Independence Monument in Phnom Penh, which will be kept burning for three days, and preside over a mass meeting in front of the Royal Palace.

High-ranking officials will participate in the ceremony with a crowd of Phnom Penh residents and students in attendance.

Foreign Ambassadors to Cambodia are also expected to be present at the event.

This afternoon, delegations from different government ministries and institutions will take turn to lay wreaths at the Independence Monument and the Royal Statue of the late King-Father Samdech Preah Norodom Sihanouk, located near the Independence Monument, to mark the Independence Day.

In the evening, from Nov. 9 to 11, there will be fireworks in front of the Royal Palace and art performances at public places to make the celebration more cheerful.
