Royal Visit
July 2, 2007

Queen of Thailand in Russia
Queen Sirikit of Thailand arrives in Russia July 2 on a nine-day state visit timed to coincide with the 110th anniversary of Russian-Thai diplomatic relations.

The queen will spend four days in the capital, Moscow, before heading on to the
nation's second city, St. Petersburg, where she is scheduled to meet with Mayor
Valentina Matviyenko.

In a message of greetings sent Monday to King Bhumibol Adulyadej, President Vladimir Putin said: "We see Her Majesty Queen Sirikit's visit as a landmark event. I am sure it will open a new page in Russian-Thai relations, helping to further strengthen them."

Putin, who invited the Thai queen to Moscow for the anniversary celebrations, will
host a banquet in her honor July 5.

King Adulyadej is the world's longest-reigning monarch. Last June, he celebrated his
60th anniversary on the throne in a lavish party which brought together royalty and
heads of state from 25 countries.

Thailand's royal couple are seen as a symbol of unity and modernity in their
country, where monarchs traditionally play a pivotal role in providing social cohesion and stability. RIA Novosti
