I was saddened to learn of the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. During his 70-year reign he was a beacon of stability for the Thai people, also in times of unrest. Time and again, the King stressed the values of harmony and peaceful cooperation. My wife, my mother and I cherish warm memories of our meetings with him. Our thoughts are with Queen Sirikit and the other members of the royal family.
