PM Shehbaz

Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on Monday underscored that the scale and magnitude of losses in the floods were too big to be borne by Pakistan alone and said that the international community’s support was of vital importance.

The prime minister expressed these views during a meeting with Ambassador of the French Republic to Pakistan Nicolas Galey who called on him.

The prime minister highlighted the extensive devastation caused by the floods across Pakistan and the government’s response to address the dire situation.

The prime minister said that Pakistan despite having a negligible contribution to climate change, was among the most vulnerable to its devastation as manifested in the recent floods.

In this regard, he expressed gratitude to the French president for solidarity and support for the flood-stricken people and for sending a relief flight carrying tents, water pumps and a team of doctors and nurses for the flood affectees.

He underlined that besides, the immediate relief assistance, France could contribute to the government’s efforts in the rehabilitation and reconstruction phase.

The prime minister reaffirmed the importance Pakistan attached to its longstanding cooperative relations with France, both bilaterally and in the context of the European Union.
