October 13, 2016

Vladimir Putin sent his condolences to Queen Sirikit of Thailand following the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand.

Mr Putin said that King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s name is associated with an important period in Thailand’s recent history that saw great economic development and a stronger position on the international stage. “Over the decades of his rule, he earned his people’s sincere love and earned great authority abroad. He will be remembered in Russia as a principled supporter of developing friendship and cooperation between our countries,” the President said in his message of condolences.

Mr Putin expressed words of sympathy and support to the entire royal family and to Thailand’s government and people.
