Pakistani leader calls for global unity to fight diseases and emergencies caused by climate change

Pakistan’s prime minister on Wednesday called for unified efforts to tackle global infectious diseases like COVID-19 and emergencies caused by climate change, nearly 1 1/2-year after devastating floods killed 1,700 people in his nation.

Representatives from 70 countries, the World Health Organization, and other international organizations attended a two-day summit. It comes as reports show that millions of people who lost their homes in the floods were still living in tents for the second consecutive harsh winter.

The 2022 unprecedented flooding, which started in mid-June that year and which experts attribute in part to climate change, at one point left a third of Pakistan submerged.

Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar told the meeting in Islamabad that “no state in the world, no matter how powerful it is, can meet such challenges” alone.

When the ruins of the human “civilisation” lay smouldering after the capitalists finally “win,” aliens, or some distant better evolved Earth species, will one day discover records of people calling for unity and action in the face of extinction and think – what the fuck was wrong with these people.
