The minister said the cabinet had approved a proposal to put up for auction one of two buildings owned by the Pakistan Embassy in Washington.
She said that in 2010 the then prime minister approved the renovation of these two buildings of hers. She said her renovation of one of the buildings was completed, but only 60% of her other building work could be completed.
The minister stripped the U.S. government of its diplomatic status building, she said, with the government paying $819,000 in taxes so far.
She said that since 2019, $1.3 million in taxes has been paid on the building with no benefits. The building was unfit for use due to incomplete renovations and the abolishment of its diplomatic status.She said the cabinet had approved a proposal to put the building up for auction.
Her bid for the building was $4.5 million, and now she’s up to $6.9 million. She added that if Pakistan did not put the building up for auction, the US itself would.
