Press Statement

Secretary of State
Washington, DC
April 7, 2011


On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I send our sincere condolences and sympathy to the people of Thailand for the loss of life and damage caused by the flooding in southern Thailand. I am grateful to the Royal Thai Government and the Royal Thai Navy for their ongoing assistance to American citizens in the area during this difficult time. The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok has offered immediate disaster relief assistance, and we are working closely with the Royal Thai Government to provide additional help if needed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kingdom of Thailand -- our longtime friend and ally -- and everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.
