‘Pakistani mangoes’ have captured the hearts of various other diplomats. Many have found ‘new love’ in this fruit, as they fell victim to its irresistible taste and quality. This boundless love highlights the immense popularity of ‘Pakistani mangoes’ in diplomacy. In this regard, it is rightful to say that if ‘mango diplomacy’ becomes a thing, it will not be a surprise.
