“Public diplomacy needs constant interaction among Pakistani diaspora abroad, academia, writers and journalists.”

This was observed in a meeting of the Head of DND Thought Centre and Prague-based Foreign Affairs expert Shazia Anwer Cheema with Pakistani origin Norwegian politician Khalid Mahmood in Oslo on Tuesday.

Mahmood is a renowned politician and writer of several books including a comprehensive research-based book on the Kashmir issue in the Norwegian language.

Since 1983, he had been serving in the Oslo city council and a seasoned politician who also held the position of deputy representative to the Norwegian Parliament.

Shazia Anwer Cheema was of the view that public diplomacy cannot be done only by diplomats but only when all the stakeholders are working together in synergy.

Norwegian diaspora of Pakistani origin and Pakistan media can work together to promote Pakistani culture and history among Norwegian youth, she said.
