The emcee for the event, Mr. Rozbeh welcomed all of the guests to the embassy and invited a respected member from the Afghan community in Japan offer prayers following the readings from the holy Quran in honor of the austere occasion. In his opening remarks, H.E. Ambassador Dr. Mohabbat extended his welcome and discussed the significance of the occasion and those Martyrs whose lives were lost in pursuit of protecting and defending the country over its past years. H.E. Dr. Mohabbat impressed upon all present that for many years, and even leading up to today, so many precious lives have been sacrificed in the struggle to secure peace throughout Afghanistan due to heinous acts of terror. For all those souls who have paid the ultimate price, and for those members of Afghanistan’s National Defense Forces and others who may continue to do so till a lasting peace is achieved, we pay honor and commemorate them on this occasion.
After all had spoken, H.E. Dr. Mohabbat invited the guests to partake in the Afghan dishes prepared by the Embassy which were served for all to enjoy.
