The mission of the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad–and the Consulates in Peshawar, Lahore and Karachi–is to promote bilateral ties between the United States and Pakistan and to foster economic and commercial relations. Embassy activities focus on strengthening democratic institutions, promoting nonproliferation and regional stability, fighting international terrorism, combating narcotics production and trafficking and fostering expanded trade and investment.
The U.S. Embassy’s Office of Public Affairs in Islamabad offers a wealth of information on all facets of life in the U.S., and also provides a forum for U.S.-Pakistani cultural exchanges. The Information Resource Center (IRC) has extensive information on a variety of topics, including current and historical events and educational opportunities in the United States.
Like every United States Mission around the world, the Embassy hopes that better communication between our two countries will improve mutual understanding, foster democratic ideals, improve human rights, and provide for a healthier global environment and a safer world.
