Martin Kobler bids farewell to Pakistan with ‘heavy heart’ in touching speech

German Ambassador to Pakistan Martin Kobler after announcing his retirement last month kept a farewell brunch on Monday to remember his 2-year-long stay in the country.

Reminiscing the time spent in Pakistan, the outgoing German envoy, who turned everyone’s favourite in a very limited time, delivered a heartfelt speech in an ode to Pakistan.

Speaking to Twitter, the diplomat said:

“What a memorable farewell brunch with my friends & colleagues! Thank you all for so much love!! gave my farewell speech with heavy heart. Was one of the best posting ever!! Only 2 days to go!! Will miss Pakistan & her people forever.”

In one other post, Kobler extolling the efforts of Karishma Ali, who was showcased in the prestigious 30 Under 30 list for starting Chitral’s first ever women’s sports club, said:

“What an honour!! @karishmaAli22 who is in ForbesUnder30 came at my farewell brunch. Didn’t know she was also a part of embassy football team.Lovely meeting her!! She started women sports club in Chitral for the 1st time!! Fully confident that youth will take this country ahead.”
