The Public Relations Department and Administrative Affairs arranged for them to be given a presentation of the building’s inception by Mr. Kenichiro Murakami, Consultant with PDS and Kanto Construction.
At the time of the new building’s inception, Mr. Murakami consulted on behalf of the Embassy as acting Architectural and Engineering Advisor for the “Iikura Project”—the name of the building project. There was a brief question and answer period following the presentation, after which Mr. Murakami gave the guests a tour of the embassy building and grounds from an architectural point of view. After all the photos were taken of the buildings point of interest, the guests were treated to a full lunch of Afghan foods, prepared for their enjoyment by the embassy, and were joined by Mr. Basir Hamdard, First Secretary, and Mr. Asif Agah, Second Secretary.
Following the lunch, Dr. Bashir Mohabbat, Chargé d’ Affaires ad interim, invited them into the Ambassador’s Office where he met with them and granted them an interview.
