WASHINGTON: United States First Lady Michelle Obama on Friday visited the Pakistan Embassy here for the first time.

Pakistan’s Ambassador to US Jalil Abbas Jilani shared pictures of the visit on Twitter. “It was an absolute delight hosting FLOTUS at Pakistan House today,” he wrote in a Twitter post.

Although the reason behind Michelle Obama’s visit isn’t clear, she had last year announced a $70 million contribution to educate adolescent girls in Pakistan as part of her “Let Girls Learn” initiative.

The First Lady’s visit to the Pakistan Embassy came at a time when relations between Pakistan and the US are strained on account of the drone strike in which Taliban supremo Mullah Akhtar Mansour was reportedly killed.
