Tokyo Conference on Afghanistan held on July 8.

On July 8th at the Tokyo Prince Park Tower the Tokyo Conference on Afghanistan was held under the direction of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.
Over 1000 participants from 82 countries and organizations gathered together in Japan to reconfirm the economic assistance and support to the Afghanistan region and government.
As a staff of the Tokyo Conference on Afghanistan it was a long month of preperation before the opening of the event.

At last, security was very tight and set at a high level on-site, as in attendance was UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai , US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and many more distinguished guests.
However there were no significant problems on-site and the event ended very smoothly.
