Prime Minister of Laos, Mr. Sonexay Siphandone, has received a letter of congratulation from his Thai counterpart, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha, on his appointment as the country’s new Prime Minister.
The message reads, “I would like to congratulate you on the occasion of your appointment as the Prime Minister of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, which shows the trust you have received from the National Assembly and the people of Laos.
I am thrilled to be able to work with you in continuing the friendship between the Kingdom of Thailand and the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, as strategic partners for growth and sustainable development, and the promotion of cooperation in new fields to bring real benefits to the people of the two nations.
