Islamabad, September 8, 2015– U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Richard G. Olson announced the launch of U.S. Mission Pakistan’s Urdu-languages web sites today during his visit to Karachi. “We now have comprehensive Urdu-language web sites at the Embassy in Islamabad as well as our three Consulates in Lahore, Peshawar, and Karachi,” said Ambassador Olson.
Recognizing the importance of providing information to Pakistanis in their national language, Ambassador Olson said, “Today, Urdu speakers all over Pakistan will be able to learn more about a range of U.S. government services and programs. This will be of special interest for those applying for visas or grants and exchanges, and for those who would like to keep up to date on the latest U.S. Mission Pakistan announcements.”
The Urdu-language web sites will provide Pakistanis with contact information and links to major U.S. government agencies and partner organizations including the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Education Foundation Pakistan (USEFP) and EducationUSA, and U.S. Commercial Services. The sites also have links to the U.S. Mission in Pakistan’s Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.
