And, today is a very special day for the entire Thai nation, as it is His Majesty king Bhumibol Adulyadej’s Royal Birthday. On behalf of the Royal Thai Embassy’s staff and the Thai community in Pakistan, I would like to invite all friends of Thailand to join me in wishing His Majesty the King good health as well as in celebrating together the glory of His Majesty the King’s life time achievement in promoting of His Royal Initiative development projects ranging from rain-making, irrigation, education, environmental conservation to poverty alleviation and human capacity building. All these projects Thailand and beyond. His Majesty acceded to the throne in 1946 and is currently the dedicated himself to development projects and worked tirelessly for the well-beings of Thais for more than six decades. This is rain-making, irrigation, public health, education, environmental conservation, poverty alleviation to human capacity building. His Majesty has always been in touch with His people. His Majesty’s renowned philosophy on sustainable development promoting living in harmony with nature and has been put into and has subsequently become recognized internationally as highly pragmatic. The UN Human Development Life Time Achievement Award presented to His Majesty in success, especially his unfaltering devotion to improving the living standard of millions of people. At home, He is the leading light in Thai nationhood. Abroad, He is known as a beloved and talented Monarch. As for the bilateral relations between Thailand and Pakistan, we have long enjoyed close and cordial relations. This year we celebrate 61 years of our diplomatic ties. The contact actually began much earlier than that. Both Pakistan and Thailand have ageold histories of ancient civilization and were connected by a common cultural linkage through visits. This year alone our two Prime Ministers met twice, in August here in Islamabad and in November in Bangkok. This has heralded a new era in our dynamic bilateral cooperation and elevated our bilateral link to a higher level never before achieved. As Ambassador of Thailand to Pakistan, I am delighted to see our bilateral ties growing from strength to strength. I am also desirous to see more people-to-people interactions and remain committed to promoting and deepening our collaboration in as unique bilateral ties.
Thank you. Kobkun Krub, Shukriya.
