March 2, 2011: Ambassador Dr. Sayed M. Amin Fatimi and Madame Wahida Fatimie received a special, warm welcome by Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.
The Emperor, who has recently suffered from a heart condition, offered appreciation for previous messages of support from H.E. President Hamid Karzai and the Ambassador, and explained that his health is now much improved.
Ambassador Fatimie took the occasion to express gratitude, on behalf of the Government and people of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, to Their Majesties for the generous and selfless support that Japan has provided in the reconstruction and development of the nation, particularly in socio-economic areas. The Ambassador assured Their Majesties that these contributions will never be forgotten and that relations between the two noble nations and peoples would continue forever.
Their Majesties, having been impressed by Afghanistan and Afghans during Their visit in 1971 and knowledgeable about developments since, showed great interest in Ambassador Fatimie’s briefing on the current situation in Afghanistan. His Majesty the Emperor enquired about security developments, reacting positively to the Ambassador’s explanation that hundreds had recently joined in the Peace Process.
Their Majesties offered their best regards to H.E. President Hamid Karzai. The Emperor and Empress offered their wishes for peace, stability, and happiness for Afghanistan, and reaffirmed Their continued dedication and personal concern for the nation and people. Ambassador and Madame Fatimie in turn wished His Majesty sound health and Japan prosperity.
