Thai king Maha Vajiralongkorn Phravajiraklaochaoyuhua and others wish Rivlin happy Independence Day

Leaders from around the world have sent letters to President Reuven Rivlin congratulating Israel for its Independence Day, his office boasts.

“Among those sending greetings were Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom, His Majesty King Carl Gustav of Sweden, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phravajiraklaochaoyuhua of Thailand along with Australia’s governor-general and the presidents of Russia, China, South Korea, Germany and Italy,” Rivlin’s office says.

From the US House of Representatives, the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus congratulated Israel not only on its “remarkable achievements and contributions to the world, but also the shared values that have sealed the friendship between the United States and the State of Israel for so many decades.”

The president has also received letters from heads of state, ambassadors, heads of Jewish communities and Jewish organizations from around the world.
