PAL-C Executive Director Fauzia Tariq, along with Board of Director members Mossadaq Chughtai, Pervaiz Lodhie and Rafiq Rahman and Regional Director Dr. Aquil ur Rehman met with the Honorable Ambassador Durrani of the Embassy of Pakistan on the morning of July 5th. The meeting was held to brief the Ambassador on PAL-C and the Pakistani American community. Also present was the Head of Chancery, Mr. Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri. The briefing promised to be the base of a renewed relationship between the Pakistani American community and the Embassy of Pakistan.

The briefing focused on a wide array of topics ranging from a candid critique of the historical relationship between Pakistan and the United States, an introduction to the Pakistani diaspora in the States, and PAL-C. The Board emphasized the importance of PAL-C’s role as the only Pakistani organization with a day-to-day presence on Capitol Hill and as a liaison between the Pakistani American community and the American political system.

Following the briefing was a round table discussion during which Ambassador Durrani praised PAL-C and its mission to educate the Pakistani American community to become more active in American politics. According to Executive Director Fauzia Tariq, “The briefing to the new Ambassador was very productive and well-received”. The conclusion yielded many insights on how PAL-C and the Embassy can work together to better represent Pakistan in the United States.
