“Today, although Cambodia is a poor country, Cambodia has always joined the international community to solve the problems that the world and our region are facing,” he said as the first passengers disembarked.

“How wonderful it is to be here. Thank you very much to the prime minister. He has a wonderful heart,” said Anna Marie Melon, from Queensland, Australia. “I’m very excited (to be here),” she said as she waved a rose Hun Sen handed to her.

The passengers cheered as they walked toward waiting buses and waved goodbye to other passengers watching from the ship’s deck.

“Your country did a great job. Did a wonderful job. Thank you very much. We appreciate it very much,” Joe Spaziani, 74, from Florida, told reporters. He and many other passengers wore a krama, a traditional Cambodian scarf, around their necks.

“Cambodia alone, even the United States, Guam, did not let us land, but Cambodia did, so that’s wonderful. Absolutely wonderful,” Spaziani said. “We appreciate it very very much. It’s been a long struggle and we appreciate everyone being here.”

Hun Sen is a very smart guy. Not only he showed his integrity and full support for China he also seized the golden opportunity to bring world attention to his little country. I'm sure tourism will boom in future with this goodwill and free global advertisement.

Hun Sen could do this because he rulez Cambodia with an iron fist since 1985. Thats a fricking 35 years, the longest serving Prime minister on the planet. How many of you in this forum have even been born 35 years ago?

He was once a trooper in the vaunted Khmer Rouge. The guys who put Cambodia on World Map with Killing Fields genocide of a million Cambodians.

Try docking in neighbouring Thailand, Malaysia or Indonesia and see if the citizens will rise up and RIOT before the ship ever enter their territorial waters.

Anyway, kudos to the Cambodians for this act of raw bravery.
