KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Afghan President Hamid Karzai expressed his condolences to Japan’s earthquake victims, by visiting the embassy of Japan in Kabul, a presidential statement said on Monday.

The earthquake on Friday in northern Japan was the most powerful and destructive ever recorded, and caused a tsunami about 10 metres high to crash down on the country’s northeast coast. At least 2,000 people have lost their lives, in addition to massive financial losses.

According to a statement, Karzai expressed the condolences of the Afghan people to the government and people of Japan during a visit to the embassy on Sunday.

At the embassy, the president wrote his sentiments in a book allocated for messages to the victims, the statement said.

 “The Japanese people are committed and hardworking. I believe they will soon overcome the difficult time ahead and continue to live their happy lives,” Karzai said.

In his meeting with the Japanese ambassador, Karzai described Japan as a good friend of Afghanistaninfo-icon and said the Afghan people would never forget the contributions of Japan to them during their hard times.
