Ambassador Dr. Sayed M. Amin Fatimie received a warm welcome from Hon. Governor Yuji Kuroiwa of Kanagawa Prefecture upon his visit to the latter’s office. Mr. Jason Pratt, Public Affairs Officer at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, was also in attendance. Ambassador Fatimie has made it a priority to further strengthen the bonds between Afghanistan and the prefectures of Japan. Kanagawa holds significance within this initiative.

Ambassador Dr. Fatimie first of all expressed, on behalf of the people and Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, deepest gratitude for the generous and effect-generating cooperation extended by Japan to the Afghan development and peace process. Within this, the Ambassador expressed that the people of Kanagawa’s kind efforts were also highly critical in the overall Japanese and international efforts that have contributed to real achievements. Later, the Ambassador would add that with great leaders such as leaders like Hon. Governor Kuroiwa as friends, the future of Afghanistan’s peace and development would be without concern. The Hon. Governor in turn welcomed sincerely the Ambassador and praised the accomplishments of Afghanistan, stating that he is eager to work closely with the Afghan residents of Kanagawa to build more mutual friendship and understanding.

With overlapping interests and goals, such as the health of their respective citizens and love of nature, the two enjoyed fruitful conversation on a number of topics. In closing, Ambassador Dr. Fatimie invited investment in Afghanistan’s natural resources by Kanagawa-based groups.

After departing from the Hon. Governor's office, Ambassador Dr. Fatimie paid a short visit to the historic city of Kamakura.
