Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

UNITED NA­TIONS—A range of Pak­istani prod­ucts, in­clud­ing food and mer­chan­dise, were on dis­play and sale – on Wed­nes­day at the an­nual United Na­tions In­ter­na­tional Bazaar at UN Head­quar­ters in New York. Brav­ing cold weather and in­ter­mit­tent rain, a large num­ber of peo­ple vis­ited the bazar, which was or­ga­nized by the UN Women’s Guild (UNWG) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with per­ma­nent mis­sions ac­cred­ited to the United Na­tions.

The event fea­tured cui­sine from around the world as well as fine arts and hand­i­crafts. Pakistan had two stalls, one for food and other fea­tur­ing cloth­ing and a num­ber of other hand­crafted items.

The wife of UN sec­re­tarygen­eral, Ban Soon-taek, who is a pa­tron of the Bazar, vis­ited one of the Pak­istani stall of­fer­ing dresses and other items. She was greeted by Pakistan UN Am­bas­sador Maleeha Lodhi. Mrs. Ban praised the qual­ity and so­phis­ti­ca­tion of the Pak­istani prod­ucts.

Mean­while, the other stall — fea­tur­ing biryani, chicken tikka and ke­babs — at­tracted big crowds. The food was sold out in no time. —APP
