After my return home, I am pleased to extend my thankfulness and appreciation to you for the honorable hospitality I have received from you in any place I resided, which expressed firmer bonds of cordiality and friendship between us.
Although my visit was short, but I have been impressed by the holy city of Kerbala, and its people. I have also realized the cordiality people have towards Japan, and their interest in the Iraq-Japanese bonds and their expectations from the government and the Japanese companies to play a prominent role to build Kerbala. For my part, I will convey to Japan my great impression on Kerbala, and will look forward to more closely strengthening our relations and cooperation in order to advance.
My best wishes to you for more success, hoping you accept my sincere appreciation and respect.
