A statement issued by the Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said that the focus of premier’s speech, scheduled for the concluding day of the five-day session, will be the challenges faced by Pakistan in wake of the recent climate-induced catastrophic floods in the country, The News reported.

“The Prime Minister will outline concrete proposals for collectively tackling the existential threat posed by climate change. He will also share Pakistan’s position and perspective on regional and global issues of concern including Jammu and Kashmir, which is one of the long-standing unresolved disputes on the UN agenda,” the statement said.

As per the FO spokesperson, the premier will be accompanied by Minister for Foreign Affairs Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, other members of the cabinet, and senior government officials, reports The News.
