“Our countries have enjoyed a profound friendship for over 200 years. Our friendship and decades-long health partnership have given us the resilience to address this global health crisis caused by Covid-19.”
The message from spokesperson Morgan Ortagus from the US Department of State.
In the same statement issued yesterday, the US Embassy sent their good wishes to the people of Thailand during the Thai new year (Songkran), despite the festivities being postponed to lessen the spread of the deadly Covid-19 virus.
“This collaboration is but one piece of our broad partnership and alliance that includes cooperation on security, law enforcement, business and trade, education and many other areas, As we begin our third century of friendship, we affirm our commitment to the US-Thai alliance as we work together to bring about shared prosperity and well-being to our people and the Indo-Pacific region.”
Ortagus also attributes the 40 years of partnership Thailand has with US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, a partnership that has helped with innovative advances that have prepared both our nations to combat the current pandemic.
