When asked if every country is invited, Don said the ministry does not send out invitations but these countries have informed the Thai government on their own that they would be attending the funeral. He noted that Thailand welcomes every guest and visitor from overseas.

In terms of readiness, Don said Thai embassies and consulates around the world have been preparing and are now ready for the upcoming funeral flower ceremony, but the exact time and date is yet to be confirmed.
