In a meeting with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on the sidelines of the 77th Session of the UNGA in New York, he noted that Pakistan is not responsible for this disaster and it needs world support. He said there should be a “global solution to a global problem”.

Drawing attention to the unprecedented rains that have triggered the worst natural disaster in Pakistan’s history, the Prime Minister stressed that the support of the international community was crucial to help the country respond effectively to this climate catastrophe, and to recover and rebuild, in a sustainable manner.

He also extended Pakistan’s support, as the current Chair of the Group of 77 and China, to advance the development agenda in the General Assembly and other relevant bodies and forums.

Emphasizing the importance of a comprehensive reform of the UN Security Council, the Prime Minister underscored the need for continuing transparent, consultative and constructive Intergovernmental Negotiations, which would respond to the positions and expectations of all member States.

The Prime Minister also briefed the PGA on Pakistan’s priority issues, including the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, Afghanistan, and Islamophobia.
