Note from Editor Pakistan in the World;

 Ukraine Embassy and Safa Gold Mall hosted a symbolic cake cutting ceremony two weeks ago at the shopping mall. It was first of its kind as people were coming to shop and participated in the ceremony. It was only to express solidarity with people of Pakistan and show the world community that Pakistan is a safe country. This was a new trend among diplomatic community initiated by Ukraine Ambassador Mr. Vlad Lakomov.
