The President of Italian Republic
Rome, 13 October 2016
TO THE ROYAL FAMILY OF THE KINGDOM OF THAILAND
I wish to express, on behalf of all the Italian People and my own, deep and sincere condolences on the passing away of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
He has been a figure of international stature, who has profoundly marked the history of Thailand.
His commitment to the development and prosperity of the Kingdom is reflected by the sincere feelings of esteem and affection expressed by His People.
Within the deep bond of friendship that unites the Thai and Italian People, our Country today joins the Kingdom of Thailand in mourning His loss.
