Remarks by His Majesty the Emperor at the Time of Their Majesties’ Departure for the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam and the Kingdom of Thailand (February 28, 2017)

Text from Imperial Household Agency

I shall be visiting Viet Nam for the first time together with the Empress at the invitation of His Excellency Mr. Tran Dai Quang, the President of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, and also making a stopover in the Kingdom of Thailand on our way back to Japan.

In our relations with Viet Nam, we welcomed as state guests to Japan, His Excellency President Nguyen Minh Triet in 2007 and His Excellency President Truong Tan Sang in 2014, and we have been kindly offered invitations to visit Viet Nam. During this visit, in the capital city of Hanoi, we will be attending a welcoming ceremony and other official events as well as meeting with persons involved in Japan-Viet Nam relations. Later, in the ancient city of Hue, arrangements have been made to allow us to familiarize ourselves with the history of Viet Nam. It is our hope that our visit to Viet Nam will contribute to the further development of the mutual understanding and friendly relations between our two countries.

On our way back to Japan, we are making a stopover in Thailand to bid farewell and pay our last respects to the late King of Thailand, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and offer our condolences to the new king, His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn. The Empress and I enjoyed a close friendship of over 50 years with the late King, who passed away in October last year.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to the Prime Minister and those who helped to make this visit possible.
