PHNOM PENH, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Queen Mother Norodom Monineath and her son, King Norodom Sihamoni, expressed their profound thanks to Chinese leaders and doctors for taking care of former King Norodom Sihanouk until his death on Oct. 15, according to a royal message released to the media on Monday.

"We'd like to express our deepest gratitude to His Excellency President Hu Jintao, Chinese government, Communist Party of China, and Chinese people for their condolences over the passing away of the King-Father," said a royal letter signed by Queen Mother Norodom Monineath and King Norodom Sihamoni and sent to President Hu Jintao last Thursday.

They also thanked Chinese leaders for arranging a plane to return the King-Father's body from Beijing to Cambodia's Phnom Penh on Oct. 17.

Besides, they expressed gratitude to elite Chinese doctors for providing medical treatment to the King-Father for 42 years until his death.

"We are very satisfied with the friendship relations and cooperation between Cambodia and China and wish to see the ties grow stronger and stronger in the future," they said in the letter. "We will remember forever the great kindnesses of Chinese government and people to the King-Father."
