Annie Khalid Participates In International Relations On Behalf Of Pakistan - Press Update

 
[Pakistan, 2nd June 2014]: Pop star Annie Khalid recently met ex foreign minister Hina Rabbani

Khar, Norwegian politician Amir Javed Sheikh and a few delegates visiting from Norway over lunch,

to discuss how the gap between Norway and Pakistan can be bridged. Annie was present at the

meeting to give her input as an artist. She discussed how she felt musicians can help portray a

positive image of Pakistan internationally.

The singer has always been very encouraging of Pakistan building good relations with other

countries. Born and raised in the UK herself, she has declared herself to be “a Pakistani before

anything else”. In recent years, her career has expanded internationally through collaborations with

international artists such as Rishi Rich, Beenie Man and A1.

Her association with Norway goes way back. She was appointed to be the Goodwill Ambassador for

the International Red Cross on September 23rd, 2010, in Norway, where she raised money with the

Red Cross for the flood victims in Pakistan, by supporting and contributing in various activities. She

also debuted her single with A1 at the Emmy Awards in Oslo.

Speaking about the meeting and her general views on international relations, Annie said “I have

always tried to show the other side of Pakistan, which is very positive, wherever I go. The international

media mostly focuses on the negative incidents happening in our country, but then they happen all

over the world. Pakistan, I believe, is so much more than that. I have performed in nearly every city of

Pakistan and the love and appreciation I have received is amazing. This is the aspect of our country

which I want to show the world. In my humble opinion, musicians are the perfect ambassadors for any

country. Our musicians have a huge fan following all over the world. We just need to start supporting

them and helping them attain international recognition, which in return will automatically promote a

positive image of our country”
