This week on "The Diplomat" we visit Afghanistan ambassador to South Korea, Abdul Hakim Atarud, at the request of an Afghan university student studying in Korea. The ambassador introduces us to Afghan traditional clothing, musical instruments and jewels that were brought to introduce Afghan traditional culture at various festivals in Korea held in Gwanghwamun and Itaewon. The Ambassador tells us about Afghan traditional tea and cookies and academic exchange between the two countries while sharing his thoughts on Korea’s economic development and plans to enhance bilateral economic cooperation. The ambassador also treats us to a feast of traditional Afghan food for breakfast and lunch.
We meet the soft spoken and kind Ambassador Abdul Hakim Atarud, who is also working hard to spread Afghan culture in Korea on this week’s "The Diplomat".
