--Speech by H.E. Li Keqiang, Premier of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China, at the National Assembly of Thailand
Bangkok, 11 October 2013
Your Excellency Somsak Kiatsuranont, President of the National Assembly and Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Your Excellency Nikom Wairatpanij, Vice President of the National Assembly and President of the Senate,
Honorable Members of the National Assembly,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It gives me pleasure to meet you here in the National Assembly. I visited Thailand 30 years ago when I was in charge of youth affairs. The impression left on me by this “land of smiles” was wonderful and lasting. On behalf of the Chinese government and people, I wish to extend to you, the representatives of the 64 million Thai people, and through you to all the people of Thailand, sincere greetings and best wishes.
