PM Imran Khan to avoids Pricey Hotels during Washington Trip
- PM Imran Khan decides to stay at the Ambassador’s Official Residence during his visit to Washington.
- Staying at Ambassador’s residence can reduce the cost of the visit however US secret service doesn’t appear to be too receptive to the idea.
- In order to avoid pricey hotel PM can stay with one of the rich Pakistani-Americans in the DC suburbs.
Prime Minister Imran Khan desires to avoid pricey hotels and stay at the ambassador’s official residence during his three-day visit to Washington.
However, the US secret service and the city’s administration don’t appear to be too receptive to the idea.
Staying at the Ambassador Asad Majeed Khan’s residence can considerably reduce the cost of the visit. The ambassador’s residence is located in the heart of Washington’s diplomatic enclave and there are so many embassies in and around that area.
US Secret Service takes over the responsibility:
The US Secret Service takes over the responsibility of a visiting dignitary as soon as he or she lands in America.
Washington receives hundreds of Presidents and Prime Ministers every year and the US Secret Service takes over the responsibility of a visiting dignitary as soon as he or she lands in America.
The federal government of the US works jointly with the city administration to ensure that those visits do not disturb the capital’s normal life.
A visiting government head also holds a number of meetings with US officials, lawmakers, and media during his stay.
It is security issues that force visiting heads of states and governments to stay at one of half a dozen hotels that have special arrangements for such VVIPs.
Since the residence is not large enough for all these meetings, PM Imran Khan will have to meet his guests at the Pakistan embassy.
PM will have to stay at Wardman Park Marriott:
Those wanting to cut down expenses also stay at Wardman Park Marriott, which is close to the Pakistan Embassy and embassies prefer this hotel because it’s huge and can be used for hosting community events as well.
Now if the PM still wants to avoid a pricey hotel, he can stay with one of the rich Pakistani-Americans in the DC suburbs.
