Pakistan welcomes UNGA’s resolution over reconstruction efforts: PM

Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday said that Pakistan welcomed the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption of a resolution, supporting its reconstruction efforts in the flood-affected areas.

On his Twitter handle, the prime minister stressed that the world should respond vigorously to the UN revised aid appeal and provide access to climate finance and debt relief to Pakistan.

These actions were critical at this stage, he added.

The UNGA has adopted by consensus a resolution entitled “Solidarity with and support for the Government and people of Pakistan, and strengthening of emergency relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction and prevention in the wake of the recent devastating floods”.

The resolution was proposed by Pakistan and cosponsored by 151 countries – over two-thirds of UN membership – from all regions, to demonstrate solidarity with millions of people in Pakistan affected by the recent devastating floods.
