We've just heard that His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand had passed away peacefully. He was 88 and was the world's longest reigning head of state.
We would like to extend our condolences to our Thai partners as well as the people of Thailand who've suffered a great loss. King Bhumidol was widely looked upon as an integral pillar of strength for his country as his subjects held him in exaltedly high esteem throughout his 70 years reign as the country's sovereign.
Be comforted in your grief that His Majesty has found peace in his eternal rest.
King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, 1927 - 2016
