MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a congratulatory message to Thailand's newly-proclaimed King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun on Saturday, the Kremlin press service said.
"We see you as a worthy successor of the Chakri Dynasty, under which Russia and Thailand established diplomatic relations nearly 120 years ago," the message says.
Besides, Putin expressed hope that "during the new monarch’s years on the throne, the Russian-Thai cooperation will be given a further boost to benefit the two country’s friendly peoples with the aim to strengthen stability and security in the Asia-Pacific region."
Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn succeeded the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, being his only heir. On December 1 he became Thailand’s 10th monarch of the Chakri dynasty, also known as Rama X. He accepted the throne 50 days later after the death of his father, Rama IX, who died in Bangkok at the age of 88.
