DUBAI: Minister for Foreign Affairs Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday attended the unveiling of the wax figure of former prime minister Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto at an event held at Madame Tussauds in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
She is the first Pakistani whose wax figure is displayed at Madame Tussauds, Dubai. The occasion coincides with Bilawal’s one-day visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a trip that includes not only the unveiling ceremony but also a crucial meeting with his Emirati counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Speaking at the ceremony, Bilawal said his mother was a “symbol of democracy, freedom and equal rights for women across the world” and portrayed the progressive face of Pakistan.
“We have a close attachment to this city and country. We are immensely grateful that the memory of our mother, Benazir Bhutto, is being honoured here in the form of this wax statue,” he added.
