In an exclusive interview to Geo News, Lodhi said that the participation of foreign dignitaries in Pakistan Day celebration reflected the defeat of those groups who aspire to diplomatically isolate the country.
“Pakistan has a bright future. And on this day let’s remember those who gave their efforts in making this country,” she said.
A flag hoisting ceremony was also organised in Washington where scores of Pakistanis poured in to celebrate the national day while being away from Pakistan's soil.
