Ambassador Fatimie meets with Mr. Yazdani to discuss support to those affected by the Tokoku earthquake and tsunami

March 24, 2011: Ambassador Dr. Sayed M. Amin Fatimie, along with Mr. S.A. Razaq Luqman, First Secretary of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, met with Mr. Nabard E. Yazdani, President of Yazdani Corporation, to discuss ways in which Afghan residents of Japan can work together in support of Japanese who have been afflicted by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. Mr. Yazdani also shared from his experience information regarding the Japanese economy and Afghan-Japanese business relations.

The 9.0 magnitude earthquake and the tsunami that resulted devastated the northeastern area of Honshu, Japan’s largest island. The effects are still being revealed and many in the worst-affected prefectures continue to suffer.

Ambassador Fatimie, who has volunteered to serve as a physician in troubled areas, will gather together a number of Afghans at the Embassy in the near future to build off of the ideas discussed with Mr. Yazdani, and put forward support measures.
