The chargé d’affaires of the Japan embassy, Takuya Tanimoto, said that considering the long historic relations between Afghanistan and Japan, Tokyo seeks to support and help the people of Afghanistan.
In an interview, Tanimoto said Tokyo wants to strengthen its ties with Kabul in a bid to have enduring relations with the people of Afghanistan.
This comes as the Islamic Emirate welcomed the prospect of the extension of relations with Japan.
Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said: “We also want to have good relations with Japan. These relations are not only for the benefit of one country, but also for the benefit of others, and nations benefit from these relations.”#
