Newsline: Pakistan Planning to Sell Embassy’s Building in the US

Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Marriyum Aurangzeb, has announced that the federal cabinet has authorized the proposal of auctioning off one of the two Pakistan Embassy buildings in Washington, US. She made this announcement during a press conference and stated that one of the buildings was fully renovated, but the second one’s restoration work was only 60 percent completed. In addition, the US government had removed the diplomatic status of that building, Information Minister added. Moreover, she claimed that the government has paid thousands of dollars in taxes for the building, which is currently not in use. Therefore, the cabinet approved the decision to auction the partially renovated building in a transparent manner.
