HM The King thanks Lao people for their assistance in the Tham Luang rescue


His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun has sent a letter to the Lao President, Bounnhang Vorachit, to thank the Lao people for their participation in the rescue to retrieve 13 young footballers from the Tham Luang caves in Mae Sai district.

In the letter, His Majesty referred to the incident, in which the boys and their coach from the Mu Pa Academy went missing in the Tham Luang-Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park, Chiang Rai province, on June 23.

“The rescue mission would not have been successful without the kindness and assistance of all those involved, including important cooperation from your country, particularly the Foundation for Assisting Poor People of the Lao PDR which sent its rescue team to join Thai rescue personnel in planning and supplying rescue equipment,” His Majesty’s letter said.

“I therefore would like to extend thanks to the Lao People’s Democratic Republic for this assistance, and for the concern and strong interest shown by the Lao people in this matter,” His Majesty added.
