During his inaugural visit as Pakistan’s interim Prime Minister, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar is set to address the 78th UN General Assembly session in New York today. In his speech, he will emphasize Pakistan’s position on the Kashmir dispute with India and share the country’s viewpoint on significant regional and global matters.
PM Kakar will discuss the robust measures his temporary government has implemented to bolster the nation’s economic recovery and attract local and international investments.
Having left for the U.S. on Sunday, the Prime Minister actively participated in the UNGA’s opening session led by UN Secretary-General António Guterres and engaged in various sideline events. At the Global Development Initiative and Sustainable Development Goals summit, he urged wealthy nations to honour their financial commitments to combat climate change and provide technical assistance to developing nations, including Pakistan.
In a “constructive” meeting with IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, PM Kakar appreciated the IMF loan approval supporting Pakistan’s economy. He updated Georgieva on the government’s strategies to stabilize and rejuvenate the nation’s economic landscape, emphasizing their goal to ensure a steady environment for growth and investment while safeguarding society’s vulnerable sections.
