Pakistan Embassy and Consulate in the UAE will remain closed on Tuesday (March 23) on account of the Pakistan Resolution Day.

On March 23, 1940, a resolution was passed for an independent state for Muslims of the sub-continent, which eventually led to the creation of Pakistan in 1947.

Pakistan Embassy, in a Facebook post, said, “As a precautionary measure amid COVID-19 situation, there will be a small event (flag hoisting ceremony) in the Embassy of Pakistan, Abu Dhabi on the occasion of Pakistan Day (March 23) limited to Embassy officials only.”

Recently, the Embassy organised a Khuli Kachehri (Open House) where Pakistan Ambassador to UAE, Afzaal Mahmood, listened to the complaints and suggestions about consular services from the community members.

He gave instructions to the concerned staff to facilitate the visitors by liberally interpreting rules and regulations.

He stressed upon humility and politeness while serving the community.

The ambassador expressed satisfaction over quality of consular services despite COVID-19 pandemic and emphasised that community members should get themselves vaccinated.
