His Majesty the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej played a fundamental role in the development of Thailand and the wellbeing of the Thai people. He would also be remembered for his vision and leadership in promoting Thailand’s relations with the international community.
Pakistan and Thailand enjoy excellent and cordial relations. His Majesty the Late King had a strong contribution to Thailand-Pakistan friendship. The people of Pakistan still cherish the landmark visit of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit to Pakistan in 1962. That visit laid the foundation of a long lasting relationship between the two countries, which has strengthened and diversified in many fields over the last decades.
