Pakistan envoy hails Omani climber Nadhira’s achievement

Muscat: Pakistan’s Ambassador to Oman, Ali Javed, has received Nadhira Ahmed Al Harthy, the first Omani woman to scale Mt Everest, the world’s highest summit, at his office to acknowledge her unprecedented feat.
The Ambassador appreciated Nadhira’s achievement while briefing the public on the stream of initiatives empowering Pakistani youth and furthering 5,000 years of proven friendship with Oman.
Trailblazer role model
He spoke about Samina Baig from Hunza-Pakistan, a trailblazer role model, who became the first Muslim female and youngest Pakistani to conquer Everest at 21 in May 2013 and who went on to accomplish the ‘7 Summits - 7 Continents’ challenge by 2014.
The Ambassador emphasised the role of athletes, especially women, in leading the aspirations of both nations.
Appreciating #PakistanAwaits 1.0 & 2.0 initiatives in bringing young Omani bloggers to visit North and South of Pakistan, Nadhira expressed her desire to becoming a part of the project.
The Ambassador presented her with the ‘Certificate of Appreciation’ for her achievement and designated her as the only Omani on ‘Citizens’ Advisory Council’ (CAC), which was launched by the Ambassador in March 2019 on ‘Pakistan Day’ with 8 diverse and eminent members.
