The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has announced to avoid the expensive hotel to stay during his official visit to the United States.
As per the details, PM Imran Khan has expressed his desire to stay at the official residence of the country’s ambassadors in Washington instead of an expensive hotel during his visit to the US starting on July 12.
As per the media report, the decision to stay at the residence of Asad Majeed—Pakistani ambassador can considerably reduce the cost of the PM’s visit. The report further added that neither the Secret Service of the United States nor the city administration appeared ‘very receptive’ to the idea of PM Khan.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Secret Service of the United States takes over the security of a visiting dignitary as soon as he or she lands in the United States of America, while the local administration of the city has to ensure that the visit does not disrupt the traffic system of Washington.
The capital of the US, Washington receives hundreds of the Presidents and the Prime Ministers from around the world every year and the federal government of the United States works jointly with the local administration of Washington to ensure that the visits of the VIPs from around the world do not disturb the normal life of the capital.
The residence of the Pakistani ambassador is in the diplomatic enclave of Washington.
