Meeting with Mr. Masataka Nakahara.
July 23, 2019: It was a pleasure for H.E. Ambassador Dr. Bashir Mohabbat to meet with Mr. Masataka Nakahara, Visiting Senior Advising Expert on Afghanistan for Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), who is a longtime personal friend of H.E. Ambassador Dr. Mohabbat, as well as a longtime friend of the people of Afghanistan, at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Japan. Also in attendance was Mr. Nasrullah Rozbeh, Second Secretary of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Tokyo.
His Excellency Ambassador Dr. Bashir Mohabbat once again warmly welcomed Mr. Nakahara to the Embassy stating how much he always appreciated his visits. In return, Mr. Nakahara expressed his deepest gratitude to H.E. Ambassador Dr. Mohabbat for always finding time in his busy schedule to meet with him and at this time gave him a briefing of his most recent trip to Afghanistan. On behalf of the people and Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, H.E. Dr. Mohabbat expressed heartfelt thanks for Japan, and most notably JICA’s contribution to developing education, health, and agriculture both rurally and in urban areas in Afghanistan which will enable it to be self-sufficient in rice production in the years to come. Mr. Nakahara assured that he and his team will continue to cooperate for constant gains in those fields, especially in agriculture. Mr. Nakahara also called for support for Afghan graduates from study in Japan, to whom they provided scholarships, in their future careers in Afghanistan.
