US secretary of state John Kerry visited the Dunkin' Donuts store in the Pakistani capital on Tuesday to a get a "little slice" of the popular American breakfast snack, and was soon trolling on Twitter.
Kerry, who is on a two-day visit to Pakistan for a strategic dialogue, dropped into the eatery early in the morning.
The 71-year American diplomat later tweeted his picture taken at the store in which he is shown dressed in a blue suit with his grey hair combed backwards.
"A little slice of home here in Islamabad at Dunkin' Donuts to start the day," Kerry tweeted. The picture was a hit on the micro blog.
It received some interesting comments, including from state-run Radio Pakistan which said the "US Secretary of State visits a local Bakery before starting the day in Islamabad."
Another tweet said, "Have been told that take a copy of this pic to your nearest Dunkin Donuts and they will pay your US visa."
His stop-over also raised eyebrows as he did not indulge in a traditional Pakistani breakfast but a popular American breakfast.
A tweet by Shaheryar Mirza said "John Kerry is at a Dunkin Donuts somewhere in Pakistan. Somewhere in Pakistan, PM Sharif is eating Halwa Poori alone."
Zaid Jilani said, "Actually culturally savvy on Kerry's part because many, many stateside dunkin donuts are owned or operated by desis."
Freudian Slip commented "Did Kerry have the Boston Creeme or the glazed donut in Islamabad today? The world needs to know!!"
