Pakistan Embassy rebuffs reports about ministerial meeting with Panama delegation in US

Pakistan Embassy in US launches forum for public diplomacy on national interests

WASHINGTON, April 17 (APP): A spokesman of the Pakistan Embassy in Washington rejected as baseless media reports about a ministerial level meeting between Pakistan and Panama on the sidelines of ongoing Spring Meetings of IMF and the World Bank.

In a special event organized by United States Department of State on the subject of Global Connect Initiative on Friday, the Pakistani delegate happened to sit next to the Panamanian delegate because of alphabetical order.

“The close proximity afforded the opportunity of a chance encounter, which was limited to exchange of pleasantries since the attention of both delegates was primarily focused on proceedings of the session,” the spokesman said.
