The government is marking the 30th anniversary of the Paris Peace Agreements with a new 30,000 riel note featuring an image of Hun Sen with the late King Norodom Sihanouk.

On Monday, Prime Minister Hun Sen issued a sub-decree to circulate a new 30,000 riel note featuring an image of himself with the late King Norodom Sihanouk, both of whom led factions included in the deal regarded as laying a path to end Cambodia’s long civil war. A ruling party spokesman said the new note, which also includes text referencing the peace treaty and its anniversary, honors those who forged the agreement.
