Condolences on the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej

Condolences from the President of the Republic of Poland, Mr. Andrzej Duda to His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajilalongkorn

 

“His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajilalongkorn,

 

It is with a very deep sadness that I have learned about passing away of His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX, the King of Thailand.

 

His Majesty is recognized in Poland as a symbol of Thailand. Many years of his reign, his courage, wisdom and charismatic leadership has been widely admired.

 

For more than 60 years, His Majesty protected His country and His subjects against the tragic events that had occurred in the history of the region. During His reign, Thai people were proud of their country and Thailand prospered immensely, while at the same preserving the values that are fundamental in constituting the Nation such as culture, tradition, the respect for religion and for family bonds.

 

Today, the Kingdom of Thailand is plunged in deep sorrow and mourns His Majesty. The Republic of Poland, on behalf of which, I am writing these words, would like to express our most sincere compassion to the Royal Family, the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand and to all the people of Thailand. We are joining with you in this difficult time.

 

Please accept, Your Majesty, my heartfelt condolences.

 

Andrzej Duda, President of the Republic of Poland”
