    .
    Those are the kind of activities the Pakistani Ambassador should be doing. Sharif should be meeting with the heads of major US corporation – the movers of shakers of World economy. Perhaps he lacks the stature?Recommend

    @Aam Admi Bechara: Shopping at Harrod’s? Jokes apart, it is strange. PIA has long-range 777s that can easily fly non-stop to Washington without having to stop to refuel on the way and as the PM he could easily commandeer one of those. He does seem to stop at London going and coming every time. Just now when he’d gone to New York for the UN session he stopped at London both ways.Recommend
