Party with the Family, Laos Pholsena Family, Making Important Contribution to China-Laos Friendship
As an outstanding politician and diplomat in Laos, Guining Pholsena is an important cultivator and founder of the friendship between Laos and China. His son, Sommath Pholsena, Minister of Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Laos, and other descendants of Guining Pholsena inherits the legacy of their parents to greatly promote the cooperation between China and Laos in various fields.
Guining Pholsena has visited China for many times and has established deep friendship with Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Chen Yi and other Chinese leaders of the older generation, making great contributions to the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Laos. The next generation of Guining Pholsena is also actively promoting the development of friendly and cooperative relations between China and Laos.
Khemani Pholsena, daughter of Guining Pholsena and Minister of Ministry of Industry and Commerce of Laos, said “as descendants of Guining Pholsena, what we have to do in the future is how to make contributions to the development of Laos and the friendly relations between Laos and China so that the two countries will always be “good neighbors, good friends, good comrades and good partners”.
In April 1963, during Lao Resistance War Against America, Guining Pholsena, Foreign Minister of the Lao coalition government at that time, was assassinated by reactionary forces. With the help of Premier Zhou Enlai and Foreign Minister Chen Yi, China received Mrs. Guining Benshew and her nine children to study and live in China.
