On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Thailand on the occasion of Songkran.
The United States values our longstanding alliance and close ties with the people of Thailand. Working together, we have made progress on critical issues. Today, we are strengthening public health, building closer economic ties, and promoting a safe and secure region. We look forward to deepening our partnership even more for the benefit of both our people and the Asia-Pacific region we share.
As you celebrate this special occasion with family and friends, know that the United States stands with you, and we are committed to a brighter future for all of our people.
