FM renews call for urgent debt relief, aid to meet unprecedented climate challenge

Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has renewed call for urgent debt relief and aid to help Pakistan meet the unprecedented challenge posed by climate induced flooding.

In an interview with Bloomberg, he said we will be having a broader conservation with all our partners about restructuring Pakistan’s debt.

Alluding to the devastation caused by the floods, the Foreign Minister said rich nations responsible for global warming should help because Pakistan contributes 0.8% of the global carbon footprint but is the eighth-most climate-stressed country.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said Pakistan aspires to not only get out of this crisis, but hoping to build back in a greener and climate resilient way.
