Kobler has also not shied away from highlighting aspects that can be improved, and even criticised authorities for failing to act.
The German envoy recently announced he will be retiring soon, and return to his home country.
Feel already sad going on retirement soon. What do you guys think? Shouldn't i prepare a back up plan after retirement and help with halwa production? 😂— German Embassy Islamabad (@GermanyinPAK) March 3, 2019
