Thank you President @JoeBiden for highlighting the plight of the flood victims in Pakistan and urging the world for an immediate response, as my country is facing the ravages of unprecedented floods. The calls of stranded women & children for help need to be heeded to. #UNGA— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) September 22, 2022
