His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun

Kingdom of Thailand

Your Majesty,

On behalf of the people of Singapore, I extend my best wishes to Your Majesty on the most auspicious occasion of Your Majesty’s ascension to the throne.

Your Majesty has been a source of solace and strength for the Thai people since the passing of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. I am confident that Your Majesty’s reign will usher in a new era of peace, prosperity and progress for Thailand.

Singapore and Thailand share a warm and close relationship forged over many decades. In the years ahead, I have no doubt that the bilateral cooperation between our two countries will continue to strengthen and yield benefits for our peoples. I would like to extend an invitation to Your Majesty to visit Singapore at your earliest convenience.

Please accept, Your Majesty, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Yours sincerely,
