Aga Shahi Remembered by Colleagues in Washington
By Khalid Hasan

Washington, DC: Veteran Pakistani diplomat Aga Shahi was mourned and remembered on Friday at a meeting held at the Permanent Mission of Pakistan in New York.
Munir Akram, who now holds the post that Shahi held through a crucial and turbulent period in Pakistan’s history, said that Shahi was one of the most distinguished and successful diplomats produced by Pakistan. “He was a great Pakistani, who dedicated himself to the country and the profession,” he said. His death, he added, has left a vacuum that will not be filled for a long time.
Shaihi worked ceaselessly all his life, setting standards of excellence for his colleagues, Akram said. He recalled, that till his last days, Shahi was serving on the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, one of his passions.
The meeting was attended by officers and staff members of the Mission and the Consulate General as well as Pakistanis serving at the United Nations.
