Former President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau paid respect to the late Monarch of Thailand His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Ratu Epeli paid his respect at the Grand Palace and later signed the condolence book as follows:

“The President, the Government and the People of Fiji mourn with Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the Members of the Royal Family, the Government and the People of Thailand on the sad occasion of the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. His light still shines brightly and will never fade,” stated Ratu Epeli.

The former President travelled to Bangkok in place of President Major General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote who is currently away abroad on official duties.

Prime Minister Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama said that the visit by the former President underscored the strong relations Fiji has with Thailand.

Ratu Epeli  was accompanied by Fiji’s non-resident Ambassador to Thailand Mr Kolinio Takali, Counsellor Pita Tagicakirewa, Protocol Officer Mr. Ilaisa Naiviqa and a representative from the Honorary Consul General of Fiji in Thailand’s office, Ms. Voranuj Nilkosol.
