The Pakistani diplomatic mission in Bangkok has issued visas to three foreign veterinary experts to visit Islamabad for assessing the health of the Islamabad Margazar Zoo’s sole male elephant, Kaavan, for relocation to a wildlife sanctuary in Cambodia.

Srisaard Channarong and Pratumdee Wichian of Thailand and Thomson Darrick Lome of Canada are likely to reach the federal capital by the end of the current month, spokesman for the climate change ministry Muhammad Saleem told reporters.
