This photographs shows of Mean Saman, president of the National Association of Women for the Salvation of Kampuchea, welcoming foreign female visitor (possibly the president of the International Women’s Democratic Federation) at Pochentong airport. The latter has a flower garland around her neck and holds a conical hat (possibly an indication she has been transiting through Vietnam). In the background, one sees the plane’s empennage and a few other Cambodian women.
