The foreign minister commended the team of Pakistan’s Consulate General in Los Angeles for “forging new areas and opportunities for Pakistan in the global business arena”, with the support of Pakistan Embassy in Washington and country’s leadership.

Pakistan’s Ambassador in Washington Asad Majeed Khan thanked the foreign minister for the support and encouragement.
