Masood commends Pakistani-American community for mobilizing support for rescue operations in flood-affected areas

Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Masood Khan, commended the Pakistani-American community for mobilizing support for Pakistan’s rescue and relief operations in flood-affected areas.

He was virtually addressing the 6th International Studies Conference organized by Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad.

The ambassador said support for flood relief from the US government, Congress, civil society, the private sector and philanthropic entities has been “massive”.

He said the Pak-US relationship over the past 75 years has shown great resilience and longevity. The two countries had fought wars together and had been fellow peacekeepers.

Masood Khan said Pakistan and the United States have a bright future ahead of them. He added that we will continue to work together to strengthen security in our region and beyond.

He also appreciated Ambassador Donald Blome’s efforts to cement a multifaceted partnership between Pakistan and the United States.

The Ambassador noted that Pakistan was the biggest recipient of Fulbright scholarships. He, however, pointed out that the total number of Pakistani students in the United States is 7,500, which is small compared to the number of students from other countries in the region.

He also stressed the need to project the soft power of both countries to dispel misconceptions and build trust.

Appreciating the important role of Lincoln Corners in Pakistani universities, the Ambassador also suggested the representation of Pakistani universities in the United States.
