Bilawal Cherry Picks: Will Work Only on Climate With India
ISLAMABAD, (IANS) – Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that his country opposes any reforms that expand the UN Security Council to bring India into the fold. Pakistan’s UN mission and its allies have worked to foil such efforts repeatedly and even quite recently as well.
He added that the UN reforms are a possibility but expanding the Security Council membership would not be a correct reform.
Bilawal said climate crisis would be one issue where Pakistan would be willing to work with India and other countries. He said that the 10 climate-stressed nations should become one voice to press developed countries to form a green financing mechanism.
Responding to a question about forming a regional bloc for the purpose, the Foreign Minister said: “With all the caveats that I have already given, principally it’s right, that on climate change issue we should work together. When I urge the US and China to work together on this, I should have the moral strength to admit that whatever the differences, India and Pakistan should work together on this topic too.”
