ISLAMABAD – New US Ambassador to Pakistan Donald Blome has said both Pakistan and the United States could effectively address the common challenges by working together.
“We live today in a world full of challenges; we can address those challenges most effectively by working together, side by side,” the ambassador said in his first ever official statement to the media after assuming his responsibilities on 23rd May 2022. Ambassador Donald Blome said, “We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Pakistan. In fact, our relationship began 75 years ago, very shortly after Pakistan gained its independence”.
Donald Blome said that he looked forward to deepening the connections between the Pakistani and American people, which he said, possessed a rich history and a brighter future.
Ambassador Blome said that he also looked forward to exploring Pakistan, from Karachi to Lahore, Peshawar to Gilgit-Baltistan, and all the places in between.
He said he had his first encounter with Pakistan’s historic jingle trucks on Saturday and learnt about the art and the artists behind such a distinct and characteristic art form in Pakistan.
