HM King asks government to treat foreign rescuers as his personal guests
His Majesty the King has advised rescuers that their plan to extract the 13 survivors form the flooded cave must be carefully thought out with their health and mental conditions taken into consideration and to make sure that both the rescuers and the survivors are safe.
Government spokesman Lt-Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd said Tuesday night that HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn offered his moral support to all who have been involved in assisting the 12 boys and their coach and advised them to maintain their consciousness, wisdom and determination in doing their jobs in the rescue operations.
The King said that the mission would be accomplished only when the survivors are safely returned to their families and this can only be succeeded with systematic planning and unity of all involved in the operations, both Thais and foreigners.
Lt-Gen Sansern further said the King expected that the Thai people learned a lesson from this experience and used the lesson learned from this experience to develop an early warning system and preventive measures against all public disasters.
As for the foreign rescuers, he said HM the King had asked the government to take good care of them once the rescue operations are over and to give them a welcome treatment and to take them for a tour as if they are the King’s personal guests until they return to their home countries.
The King also expressed his appreciation and thanks to all rescuers, both Thais and foreigners.
