The Passing of General Prem Tinsulanonda,
Statesman and President of the Privy Council
On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I offer my deepest condolences on the passing of General Prem Tinsulanonda to his family, friends, and the people of Thailand.
General Prem devoted his life to Thailand and to the Thai people as an officer in the Royal Thai Army, a prime minister, and a member of the Privy Council. His commitment to the long-standing U.S.-Thai partnership and alliance contributed to regional security and helped our two nations prosper.
The United States will long remember General Prem’s friendship and dedication to his country.
