KARACHI: Pakistan’s very first documentary maker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy has been appointed to the post of Consul General of Norway in Karachi.

The handover concluded at a reception at her residence in Karachi.

Tore Nebredo, Norway’s Ambassador to Pakistan thanked Mr. Moonis for his effortless services for the country.
