Prime Minister Imran Khan had a meeting with renowned American singer and actress Cher on Friday.
As per the details, Cher had arrived in Pakistan to send off Kaavan, an elephant she has struggled for years trying to free. The elephant has been taken to a sanctuary in Cambodia on Sunday.

On the other hand, a statement from the PM’s office mentioned that Khan had thanked Cher and invited her to take part in further environmental activities in Pakistan. He asked her to contribute to the government’s plans for the expansion of protected areas. She agreed.
On the contrary, Cher has also appreciated PM’s initiative to make Pakistan “cleaner and greener”. She said both the ‘Protected Areas Initiative’ and the ‘10 Billion Tree Tsunami’ projects of the government were highly commendable and praiseworthy. She also offered support for continuing the green initiatives through her organization ‘Free the Wild’.
