Watch: PM Imran receives rockstar’s welcome at jam-packed Capital One Arena

WASHINGTON D.C.: Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is on a three-day maiden tour to the United States upon the invitation of President Donald Trump, received a rockstar’s welcome at the packed to the rafters Capital One Arena in downtown Washington as he arrived on Sunday evening (early morning in Pakistan) to address a gathering of over 30,000 Pakistani expatriates.

The arena, however, offers a sitting capacity of only 20,000.

The event, which was streamed live on news channels and social media, was viewed by millions across the US and back home.

The prime minister’s address was distinctive in this way because, previously, visiting Pakistani leaders used to address the expatriates in community halls or closed-door rooms at hotels.
