WASHINGTON (Dunya News) - Pakistan s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday said that Pakistan s economic interests are linked with the United States, Dunya News reported. Bilawal Bhutto said that he gave importance to foreign policy after assuming office.
Speaking during a conversation at the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center, Bilawal said that Pakistan and US are desirous to work together and want to expand bilateral relations.
He said that Pakistan and US can help each other in diverse fields as there are opportunities for cooperation between the two countries in agriculture, health, and other fields.
“We know what great, great things we’ve managed to achieve together when Pakistan and the United States have worked together,” Bilawal said.
Bilawal Bhutto said that dealing with the post-flood situation in Pakistan is the biggest challenge as 33 million people were affected by flood. He said that cooperation from the international community is needed for the rehabilitation of flood victims.
The devastating floods in Pakistan in 2022 were the worst since at least the historic floods of 2010. But climate catastrophes around the world are very different now than a decade or more ago. “We experienced this year what can be only described as a climate catastrophe of biblical proportions,” Bilawal said.
Bilawal Bhutto said that the situation in Afghanistan and the war in Ukraine badly affected different countries while the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic also affected the economy of the whole world. He said that Pakistan is taking concrete steps for food security.
