Pak Embassy DC ignores FATA parliamentarians Jalil Afridi

Dashington DC: Pakistani embassy in Washington DC completely ignores three FATA parliamentarians who are currently in Washington since last one week on the invitation of US State Department. Member National Assembly Qaisar Jamal Afridi from Darra Adam Khel (FR Kohat), Ayesha Gulalai from Waziristan Agency and Senator Hidayat Ullah from Bajaur Agency have meeting different senior American high officials including congressman and senators but the embassy of their own country did not even bother to call them or invite them for a cup of tea. At a time when FATA is probably the most important topic of discussion between US and Pakistani parliamentarians, the embassy of Pakistan could have briefed their own Parliamentarians with regard to different issues of FATA so that the U.S. Officials would have briefed in a more proper manner but instead the officials at the embassy refuse to wake up from their deep naps and usual entertainments. Such treatment is not only meted out to the FATA parliamentarians but also to this scribe who also belongs to FATA and is among the four working Pakistani journalists here in Washington DC whom despite several requests to Nadeem Hotiana, the press attache at Pakistan Embassy since last four months has been unable to get a few minutes from the Pakistani Ambassador in Washington DC for an interview.
