EU Ambassador Terms Pakistan Safe For Foreign Travellers
The European Union Ambassador Androulla Kaminara says that Pakistan is an amazing country with a lot of potential of becoming a great tourist spot. She says the country is rich with diversity in terms of weather, landscape, biodiversity, and rich cultural heritage.
Apart from being a beautiful country, she says Pakistan is home to hospitable and welcoming people and is a safe place for foreign travellers.
“I have been lucky enough to visit some stunning parts of Balochistan, Sindh, K-P (Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa), and Punjab. I hope that once the Covid situation improves, I will have many more opportunities to see more of the beauty that this country is blessed with and to interact with as many different people from the cultural diversity of this country,” she said in a recent interview with APP.
Ambassador Kaminara visited the Rohtas Fort which is one of the Unesco World Heritage Sites since 1997. Addressing the issue of restoring cultural heritage she said, “Many of the scenic parts of the country still remain unexplored and that is where the huge tourism potential exists, particularly the stunning northern part of Pakistan with the vast Karakoram mountain range to the coast in the south. The EU believes that enhancing cultural heritage is an important component – not only for tourism – but also for peace and dialogue.”
What a remarkable place #Rohtas Fort is !!! A world heritage site of #UNESCO – a title it deserves. Beautiful scenery all around as well. Well worth a visit and we have already planned to come back soon. #BeautifulPakistan pic.twitter.com/g6ZCpLQ8uv
