Romanian singer, songwriter and a member of the popular pop band Akcent, Adrian Sina met Directore-General Inter Services Public Relations Major-General Asif Ghafoor in Rawalpindi on Monday.
Sina expressed his happiness at travelling from Bucharest, the Romanian capital, to the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi in Pakistan through a video shared on his official social media account.
“Hello, I am Adrian Sina from Akcent. I am so happy that I have had the chance to travel a long way, from Bucharest, where I live, to Pakistan, to meet the general.”
While continuing, Sina praised Pakistan’s tea once again, he said,
“I have discovered, once again, that Pakistani tea is fantastic.”
Sina says, taking a thinly veiled jibe at India. The ‘tea is fantastic’ phrase is related to the capture of an Indian pilot, Abhinandan by Pakistan Air Force back in February.

Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan was captured by Pakistan in Feburary after his plane was shot down in Pakistan territory. In the video made by Pakistan army after his capture, Abhinandan appreciated the tea offered him by Pakistani officials, where he commented “the tea is fantastic”.
As officials interrogated Abhinandan, the captured commander further added that Pakistanis had treated him very well, saying that the tea provided to him was fantastic. The phrase has since become the punchline to many jokes at the expense of India.
