The Royal Thai Consulate General in Zurich expresses its heartfelt and most sincere condolences to the Royal Family and to the people of Thailand on the death of His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
As the heart and soul of the nation, His Majesty guided the Kingdom of Thailand throughout his entire life with great wisdom, dignity, and a genuine care for the welfare of all people.
As the spiritual leader and unifying dignitary for all the Thais, His Royal Majesty has led Thailand's remarkable development and advancement over the past 70 years of his extraordinary reign, during which He also became an internationally highly acclaimed and respected ruler.
The close diplomatic ties and the bilateral relationship between Thailand and Switzerland were particularly nurtured by the fact that His Majesty King Bhumibol spent His youth in the Swiss city of Lausanne, which gave further rise to a very special friendship between Switzerland and Thailand that will certainly continue to emphasize the long-lasting cooperation of the two countries in harmony and peace.
We are deeply saddened and mourn.

Dr. Markus A. Frey

Honorary Consul General
