Mitsuji Suzuka, the Japanese Ambassador to Afghanistan, stated that the Japanese Government would complete the projects undertaken by Dr. Tetso Nakamura in Afghanistan’s eastern provinces.
According to Ambassador Suzuka, Japan’s developmental programs in Afghanistan will continue even after Dr. Nakamura’s death.
Meanwhile, Asif Sediqi, a deputy of the Upper House of Afghan Parliament stressed that people’s appreciation of Nakamura’s efforts in different regions shows that Afghans have a “thirst” for peace, and the government should learn from Nakamura and pay attention to it.
“I call on the government leaders that if you want to earn people’s trust, you should learn from Nakamura who is a Japanese, but every Afghan cried for his death,” said Sediqi.
Dr. Tetsu Nakamura was originally from Japan, but he served in the Health, Agriculture, and Infrastructure sectors in the east of Afghanistan between 1991 and 2019.
He was assassinated last week in Nangarhar Province. Dr. Nakamura’s murder caused expressions of grief and appreciation for his work upon the behalf of the nation.
