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. "Today, Urdu speakers all over Pakistan will be able to learn more about a range of US government services and programmes,” Olson said while recognizing importance of providing information to Pakistanis in their national language.
“This will be of special interest for those applying for visas or grants and exchanges, and for who would like to keep up to date on the latest U.S. Mission Pakistan announcements." The Urdu language websites will provide Pakistanis with contact information and links to government agencies and partners including the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the US Education Foundation Pakistan (USEFP) and Education USA, and US Commercial Services.
The sites also have links to the U.S. Mission in Pakistan's Facebook pages and Twitter accounts. The four Urdu-language web sites can be accessed at: urdu.pakistan.usembassy.gov, urdu.lahore.usconsulate.gov, urdu.peshawar.usconsulate.gov and urdu.karachi.usconsulate.gov.
