November 17, 2020: Ambassador Dr. Bashir Mohabbat and Mr. Najibullah Safi, Counsellor of the Embassy of Afghanistan in Tokyo, had a meeting today with Mr. Yamaguchi, the President of Gyros Co., Ltd. and Ms. Hitomi Sonoda, the consultant.

They exchanged views on a forthcoming project for strengthening security in Kabul International Airport. After several years’ delay of the initial plan with USD 40 million of the financial support provided by JICA due to unstable security situations of the site, the construction will be started in December 2020 and will be completed in April 2023.

Both sides spoke about the importance of security improvement to solve existing problems including complicated body check processes and problematic vehicle inspection of the Kabul international airport.

Ambassador Mohabbat took the opportunity to thank the people and Government of Japan for their continued support and significant contribution to the development of Afghanistan over the past two decades.
