Japan pledges to complete half-finished projects in Afghanistan

Takashi Okada, the Ambassador of Japan to Kabul, has pledged to complete half-finished projects in Afghanistan during a meeting with Attaullah Omari, the Taliban Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock.

In a Persian statement on Wednesday, the Taliban Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock stated that Omari requested Japan’s cooperation in the areas of grain production, water management, animal breeding, dairy production, climate change, and natural resource protection.

According to the statement, Okada said that Japan would provide financial support and cooperate in completing its remaining projects in Afghanistan, which would create new opportunities for employment in the country.

Before the Taliban took over Afghanistan, Japan was one of the major contributors to the country’s reconstruction and development. In the last two years, Japan has continued to provide financial assistance to Afghanistan, particularly in the field of supporting women’s and girls’ education.
