    His political career was intertwined with China, which had a great influence on him.

    His soul is liberated from the turmoil of earthly concerns that has buffeted his life.

    On 17 Oct., National flags are raised to half mast in key locations of Beijing in honour of the late king Norodom Sihanouk.

    Norodom Sihanouk could be the most recognized foreign king in China among ordinary Chinese people, even people in the most remote area know him, for example my father. My father and I rarely talked about international issues on cellphone, but last night he mentioned the death of Norodom Sihanouk.

    His unfortunate death marks the end of an era, an era when China was isolated from the rest of the world but fortunately had a friend like king Norodom Sihanouk. It is a great loss for both China and Cambodia, and I do feel sad.
