120th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Thailand

From the speech of H.E. Ambassador Kirill Barsky:

"...This year, the Day of Russia celebration in Thailand is very special. The year 2017 marks the 120th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Russia and Thailand, established during the Royal Visit to Russia of His Majesty King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) in 1897. Since then ties between our two countries have been inspired by the special chemistry that existed between Tsar Nicholas II and King Rama V. 

It is worth saying that Thailand is one of the few countries in the Southeast Asia to have such a long-standing relationship with Russia. My country has always been able to understand Thais and to provide assistance to Thailand when it needed help. 

This year we also commemorate the 70th anniversary of the opening of the USSR Embassy in Bangkok and the Royal Thai Embassy in Moscow. The Soviet Union and Thailand had different ideologies and political systems but never were foes to each other. There was no conflict of interests between Moscow and Bangkok, and they were always respectful of one another. Moreover, USSR and Thailand maintained stable and productive cooperation in many areas. 

The substantial political dialogue never stopped between them. In 1958, H.R.H. Prince Prem Purachatra visited Moscow. In 1979 Prime Minister Gen. Kriengsak Chamanand, and in 1988 Prime Minister Gen. Prem Tinsulanonda, were received in the USSR. His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn and Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani paid visits to the Soviet Union in 1989. In 1993, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn visited Russia.

At the turn of the 21st century, Russia and Thailand started to rediscover each other as important partners. In 2003, H.E. Mr. Vladimir Putin paid a state visit to the Kingdom of Thailand. In 2007, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit reciprocated with a state visit to Russia on behalf of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. In May 2016 in Sochi Mr. Putin had a very good meeting with Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, Prime Minister of Thailand. 

Heads of our governments established intensive contacts. Over the last two years, official visits of H.E. Mr. Dmitry Medvedev to Thailand and H.E. Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha to Russia took place. They also met twice on the sidelines of international meetings. Regular exchange of delegations has become business as usual on all fronts..."
