The U.N. General Assembly and Security Council stood in silent tribute to Thailand’s King Bhumibol, and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called him “a unifying national leader” who is “highly respected internationally.”
Assembly President Peter Thompson asked the assembly at the start of Thursday’s meeting to stand for a moment of silence in tribute to the king, who died earlier in the day. Shortly after, Russia’s deputy U.N. ambassador, Petr Iliichev, did the same at the start of a Security Council meeting.
The assembly, the council, and the secretary-general sent condolences to the royal family and the government and people of Thailand.
“At this time of sorrow and loss,” Ban said, “I hope that Thailand will continue to honor King Bhumibol’s legacy of commitment to universal values and respect for human rights.”
