On behalf of the Government and the people of the Kingdom of Thailand, I have the honour to extend my warmest congratulations to Your Excellency and the Cambodian People's Party for yet another landslide victory in the general elections. I am confident that, under Your Excellency's able leadership and renewed mandate, Cambodia will continue to prosper in the years ahead. I also wish to congratulate Your Excellency and the Cambodian authorities concerned for successfully holding the said general elections, the Thai Premier wrote in his recent message.

Thailand, as an immediate neighbour, reaffirms our commitment to further strengthening the longstanding ties of friendship and close cooperation with Cambodia for the mutual benefits of our two peoples, he stressed.
