On this solemn occasion, Ambassador Chindawongse represented the Royal Thai Government in receiving the “Dag Hammarskjöld” medal from the Secretary General in honour of Sergeant Major First Class Kiattisak Prapananurak, who served in the Thai Horizon Military Engineering Company in the United Nations Mission in South Sudan until his untimely passing in 2021. The Ambassador also signed the book of condolences paying tribute to Sergeant Major First Class Kiattisak and other fallen peacekeepers for their selfless dedication to peace and service to humanity.
