In 1966, Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-1973) became the first sitting U.S. chief executive to visit Thailand. Their Majesties King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit held a banquet at the Grand Palace in the president’s honor. -
The mutual amity shared during this historic trip carried over into His Majesty’s second state visit to the United States in 1967, where in his opening statement at the White House, he remarked to President Johnson and the First Lady: “We meet you both not only as Head of State, but as old friends.” -
