Pakistan’s FM urges South Asian states to adopt regional approach in addressing common challenges

Islamabad (UNA-OIC) – Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday called upon the South Asian states to pool resources and adopt a region-centric approach in jointly addressing the common challenges of the pandemic, food security, locust invasion and climate change.
“The development needs of the people of South Asia can only be fulfilled by pooling resources and taking a regional approach,” Qureshi said in his virtual address to the informal meeting of SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) Council of Ministers on the sidelines of the 75th UN General Assembly, held in New York.
