US Consulate Karachi marks Baloch Culture Day

Karachi—US Consul General in Karachi hosted a musical reception for Baloch journalists and civil society leaders to celebrate Baloch Culture Day. A US Consulate statement on Wednesday said that this is the second year the Consul General marked the occasion at his Residence. Popular Baloch folk singer Akhtar Channal Zehri performed.
The Consulate had also organized similar events on Sindhi Culture Day and for members of Karachi’s Pakhtun community. In his welcome remarks during the musical reception, Consul General Brian Heath said: “The U.S. Consulate General in Karachi represents the United States in Sindh and Balochistan,”
“While geography makes it difficult to meet with officials and citizens from Balochistan as often as we might like, we do our best, and today’s event is a reflection of that.” The Consul General stressed the importance of cultural interaction in building lasting relationships. “Pakistan can be proud of its incredible diversity,” said Heath, while expressing his appreciation for Pakistan’s rich cultural heritage.
In the United States, cultural diversity is seen as a source of strength, said Consul General Heath. “We value and celebrate many different cultures, each of which contributes toward a strong and vibrant American society. Pakistan, too, is home to people of many different cultures- sources of pride and strength.”—APP
