Pakistan ambassador to the United States Masood Khan has said cross-cultural learning through a people-centric approach can prove helpful in promoting bilateral relations between Pakistan and the United States.
He expressed these remarks in a meeting with a 25-member group of Grade 5 students from Janney Elementary School in Washington.
The students met the ambassador at the Pakistan embassy under the Embassy Adoption Programme (EAP), a joint collaboration between DC Public Schools and Washington Performing Arts.
Masood Khan said the Embassy Adoption Programme was an excellent initiative to promote multicultural relations that could have a far-reaching impact.
He appreciated the students for their heartwarming presentation on Pakistan covering areas of art, geography, and sports.
They developed a 'Jeopardy game' series on Pakistan where quiz questions were based on Pakistani arts, national flowers, animals, and landscapes which was followed by a flawless Pakistani anthem performance that enthralled the audience.
The chorus was led by grade 5 student Margaret Melia.
The Pakistani envoy desired to explore possibilities of having exchanges with counterpart schools in Pakistan.
