Pakistan wants economic justice: FM

WASHINGTON: Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Pakistan does not want charity but economic justice as it produces only 0.8 percent carbon but it is the most affected country due to global warming.

Addressing a dialogue held in Wilson Centre in Washington, he said that thirty-three million people of Pakistan have been affected while standing crops at four hundred thousand acres are under water due to floods.

He urged the United Nations and International Financial Institutions to come forward for rehabilitation of flood-affected people of Pakistan.

He said that the wealthy countries should provide 100 billion US dollars a year to less wealthy nations, to help them adapt to climate change and mitigate further rise in temperature.

He stressed the world countries to provide more medicines, tents, mosquito nets and food items for flood-hit areas as diseases have been prevailed in flood-affected areas of Pakistan.
