KARACHI – US Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson announced the launch of the US Mission’s Urdu language websites on Tuesday during his visit to Karachi.

“We now have comprehensive Urdu language websites at the embassy in Islamabad as well as our three consulates in Lahore, Peshawar and Karachi,” he said in a statement.
