PM likely to attend 78th session of UNGA next month

She added that the prime minister will elaborate on the significant measures being taken by the caretaker government to consolidate Pakistan’s economic recovery and efforts to mobilise domestic and external investment.

The caretaker prime minister will also participate in a Summit on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other high-level meetings organised under the auspice of the UN General Assembly.

She added that these will afford valuable platforms to deliberate on effective measures required at the global level for addressing the most pressing economic and development challenges confronting the Global South in the wake of the COVID pandemic, geo-political contestations and climate change.

On the sidelines of the UNGA session, she said that the prime minister will hold bilateral meetings with counterparts from various countries as well as with the heads of international organisations, philanthropic organisations and corporate leaders.

She said that the caretaker prime minister will also avail of the opportunity to engage with other heads of state and government attending the UNGA session during the various activities organised on the sidelines.

“Pakistan sees the United Nations as the most representative and inclusive forum of nation-states. The Prime Minister’s participation in the General Assembly session is a demonstration of Pakistan’s abiding commitment to multilateralism, with the UN playing a pivotal role in international affairs for promoting peace and prosperity worldwide,” she added.

Why is a caretaker PM spending government money to go to NY, use an expensive plane, stay in expensive hotel? Why and who in the world cares to hear from him? The Pakistan Ambassador to UN or to USA accompanied by a FO senior can do the job much cost effectively.
