Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we could not hold our usual yearly reception.
  We had a special guest, Mr. MORIMOTO Satoshi, who was Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of Japan in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1985, and later became Defense Minister of Japan. He kindly sent us a video message.
  At the dinner, Ambassador MATSUNAGA talked about Japan’s contribution to Nigeria on national security, and exchanged opinions with the guests on security issues as well as economic development cooperation.
