Addressing the UN General Assembly on Thursday, US Vice President Joe Biden appealed for help to Pakistan, which has been hit hard by the devastating floods.
The UN has appealed to the world to help Pakistan deal with the crisis after the recent monsoon caused floods across the country and cost the economy more than $30 billion.
During the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), US President Joe Biden brought flood-affected Pakistan to the attention of the world.
During his speech at the UNGA session, the US President said that Pakistan is still under water and needs help.
Prime Minister Shaybaz Sharif was also present when Joe Biden spoke at the famous General Assembly Hall.
On September 23, Prime Minister Shehbaz addresses the UNGA. He will focus on the difficulties Pakistan is currently experiencing as a result of recent, catastrophic floods caused by climate change.
US Vice President Joe Biden pledged an additional $2.9 billion in funding to help fight global food insecurity during his speech.
According to a White House statement, the funding “builds on $6.9 billion the US government committed earlier this year to improve global food security.”
