September 29, 2022

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has reiterated the desire to rebuild Pak-US friendship that was based on trust, respect and mutual understanding.

Addressing a ceremony in connection with 75th anniversary of PAK-US relations, in Islamabad today (Thursday), he said the level of this friendship can only be achieved through honest, sincere and serious dialogue.

The Prime Minister said our relations with the United States shouldn't be seen through the prism of our relations with Afghanistan and China.

He said it is matter of great honor to recall that the United States was one of very first countries which offered full recognition to Pakistan.

The Prime Minister also recalled that his recent meeting with President Biden was again very assuring for the support for the program which we have offered to flood affectees in Pakistan.

The Prime Minister said the catastrophic situation is not made by us which destroyed over four million acres of our cultivable land. Sixteen hundred people including children and women have died in it. More than a million livestock have been killed.

He said we are working hard and overtime to help the affected people but it's not enough until every affected person get all facilities back. The task of rehabilitation is even bigger which requires resources. We need the support of international community for rebuilding our infrastructure and providing shelter to our people.
