On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, it is with great pleasure that I wish Her Royal Highness Maha Chakri Sirindhorn a joyous 60th birthday.

Her Royal Highness has admirably devoted her life to the service of the Thai people. She is a generous patron of her country’s poor, supporting development projects in education, health, hygiene, water resources, and agriculture. She is also an accomplished scholar, and for much of her life has been a dedicated teacher of history for her country’s emerging leaders.

We wish Her Royal Highness all the very best on this auspicious occasion, and reaffirm our friendship and express our support for the Thai people.
