Participants from NAIMUN LV visit Pakistan Embassy DC
A group of fifty students, accompanied by six teachers, from University of Detroit Central High School and Park Tudor High School, Indianapolis visited Pakistan Embassy, Washington DC today. These students are currently in Washington to participate in the North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN) LV conference from February 15-18, 2018 being supported by the Georgetown University.
The NAIMUN conference is said to be one of the oldest UN simulations for high school students. Over three thousand high school students convene for four days and simulate roles as delegates to the United Nations.
Deputy Chief of Mission Rizwan Saeed Sheikh, while talking to the students, gave an overview of environment at the United Nations and shared with them tips for defending their positions and roles in simulation. While briefing the group on Pakistan-U.S. relations, Mr. Rizwan stressed the importance of this relationship. He also highlighted diversity in these relations that include fields like education, culture, economic, defense and security.
Towards the end, students had a lively interactive session. They showed keen interest in knowing about Pakistan and its role in the region and the world.
