The 'Chaunsa' mangoes were dispatched to the heads of state/government of 32 countries on behalf of the president Arif Alvi, reported The News International.

Sources told the News International that the boxes of mangoes will also go to Iran, Gulf countries, Turkey, United Kingdom, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Russia.

Sources said the FO had also listed the French president Emmanuel Macron among the recipients but Paris hasn't responded to Pakistan's intent.
