Japanís Leaders Offer Condolences after King Bhumibolís Passing

TOKYO Ė Several senior Japanese politicians, including the Prime Minister, visited on Friday the Thai Embassy in Tokyo to offer their condolences following the death Thursday of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

A total of eight high-level state leaders were scheduled to pay their respects at Thailandís embassy in the Japanese capital, where the Thai flag was flying at half-mast, an epa journalist reported.

State Minister for foreign affairs Nobuo Kishi was the first to arrive Friday morning, and went into the embassy around 9:40 a.m. (0040 GMT).

Premier Shinzo Abe was received there by the Thai ambassador to Japan Bansarn Bunnag, with whom he briefly spoke before bowing in front of a portrait of the late Thai monarch and signing a book of condolences.

About 20 people were seen at the embassy Friday morning, most of whom wore black clothing and signed books of condolence.

King Bhumibol, a revered figure in Thailand regarded as a symbol of unity and stability amid tumultuous political developments, died Thursday at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok.
