NEW YORK: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Friday is addressing the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session in New York, United States.
PM Shehbaz landed in New York to attend UNGA’s first in-person session since 2019 as the world was gripped by the coronavirus pandemic.
The prime minister said he was at the UNGA “to tell Pakistan’s story to the world.”
“A story of deep anguish and pain arising out of a massive human tragedy caused by floods. In my address at UNGA and bilateral meetings, I will present Pakistan’s case on issues that call for the world’s immediate attention,” the premier wrote.
