Mes­sage of H.E Mr. Mar­win Tan-At­tanawin Am­bas­sador of Thai­land to Pak­istan

The Diplomatic Insight - - National Day Of Thailand -

*Sawas­dee Krub, As­salam-o-Alykum. t is my great plea­sure to have an op­por­tu­nity to ad­dress our Pak­istani friends to­day. 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.
