WASHINGTON: Pakistan adopted Mango diplomacy in the United States as Pakistani Embassy in Washington organized gatherings where Pakistani Ambassador to the US Asad Majeed Khan invited American lawmakers to handover them boxes of Pakistani Mangoes.
“Never thought diplomacy could be so sweet,” commented a US lawmaker as he received a box of Pakistani mangoes.
“And I never thought mangoes could be so delicious,” said another US official, while nibbling a piece of mango with a fork.
They were among a group of selected US lawmakers, officials, media personnel and scholars invited to a mango-diplomacy dinner at the residence of Pakistani Ambassador to the US Asad Majeed Khan last week.
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Congressmen Jim Banks, Tom Suozzi and Pete Sessions were also among the guests.
