Speaking at the ceremony, Prime Minister Hun Sen thanked Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and the High-level Vietnamese delegation that had been invited to attend the ceremony, which had been provided by Vietnam for their support and coordination for Cambodia's participation in the event.

 He pointed out that prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh's speech was a clear, transparent summary of The Road bringing down Pol Pot's Genocide , reviving the country personally and the Cambodian people, as well as the historical relations between the two countries.

The prime Minister Hun Sen said that he had four options at the time: one was to use the force he was leading to armed rebellion, but if this alternative was to be chosen, the force he commanded would soon be destroyed in the pool of blood.

The second option is for Vietnam; The third option was to do nothing, to expose the Pol Pot genocide to continued crime and the fourth was to commit suicide. The prime Minister Hun Sen said that at the time there was "nothing but empty hands and waiting to die".

During that difficult moment, Prime Minister Hun Sen, along with some of the Cambodian patriotic cadres, decided to come to Vietnam to express the desire of the Cambodian people to seek help from Vietnam. As he once said, given the political situation at home and internationally, there was no other road.

Prime Minister Hun Sen emphasized that history demonstrated without the "The road bringing down Pol Pot’s genocide" began on 20 June 1977 and that subsequent events would not have happened today.

He again asserted that the Vietnamese action was justified, that Vietnamese volunteers joined Cambodia in the cause of national liberation, and saved the Cambodian people from the Genocide of Pol Pot in order to resurrect and develop the country.

Prime Minister Hun Sen also expressed pride in having contributed to the past 45 years of relations between Vietnam and Cambodia; These include taking steps to complete the demarcation of the border markers, making formerly war-torn borders a comprehensive, stable, and peaceful zone.
