Antony J. Blinken, Secretary of State
The United States congratulates Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin on his selection as Thailand’s next prime minister. This year, we celebrate 190 years of formal diplomatic relations, making the U.S.-Thai partnership one of our oldest relationships in the world. Together, as friends and allies, we have deepened mutual prosperity, improved security in the region, faced global public health challenges, and forged strong people-to-people ties.
We look forward to working with the Prime Minister to build on last year’s U.S.-Thailand Communiqué on Strategic Alliance and Partnership, and to further strengthen the enduring alliance between the United States and Thailand. We will collaborate closely with the new Thai government to continue advancing our shared values and a free and open, connected, peaceful, and resilient Indo-Pacific region.
