In his address to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, US President Joe Biden made a fervent pitch for extending help to Pakistan in the wake of the catastrophic floods, as he announced over $2.9 billion in new assistance to address global food insecurity.
Biden on Wednesday was confronting no shortage of difficult issues as leaders gathered this year at the UNGA, The Express Tribune reported.
“Families are facing impossible choices, choosing which child to feed and wondering whether they’ll survive,” he said.
“This is the human cost of climate change. And it’s growing, not lessening.”
Biden’s appeal came a day after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had urged world leaders to help Pakistan deal with its debts.
