Mrs. Ann Mills Griffith, executive director of U.S. National League of Prisoner Of War/Missing In Action (POW/MIA) Families profoundly thanked the Cambodian government and people for their active support in searching the remains of the American soldiers missing in Cambodia during the war time.

Cambodia has been recognized by its efforts and high standard in this issue, Mrs. Ann Mills Griffith said here today during a meeting with Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen.

Mrs. Griffith also would like to have a joint meeting between Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and the U.S. to cooperate in searching the remains of the American soldiers who lost their lives during the Indochina war, Ieng Sophalet, assistant to the Cambodian premier told reporters after the meeting.

In reply, Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen expressed Cambodia’s irreversible stance since 1994 to actively cooperate in this humanitarian work even though Cambodia and the U.S. have not yet reestablished their diplomatic relations at that time.

He further encouraged all sides to cooperate in looking for new information sources and urged the U.S to speed up the search because the people who have known this issue are getting very old now.
