PM Shehbaz will go to Qatar to attend a United Nations summit
The 5th United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), which is scheduled to take place in Doha from March 5 to 6, will be attended by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
The summit will look at ways to speed up sustainable development in the nations and help them move closer to prosperity. PM Shehbaz will travel to Doha at the Amir of Qatar‘s invitation.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahra Baloch stated in a press release on Saturday that the prime minister will hold bilateral meetings and interactions with participating leaders and heads of delegation in Doha on the sidelines of the conference.
At the conference, the leaders will agree on a renewed partnership between LDCs and their development partners and mobilize additional international support measures and actions in their favor.
Pakistan has been a major player in UN platforms that promote sustainable as well as development worldwide by amplifying the collective voice of the Global South.
Pakistan actively supported Qatar’s and the LDC chair’s efforts in 2022 to ensure the consensus adoption of the Doha Programme of Action for the LDCs and its endorsement by the UN General Assembly in its capacity as Chair of the Group of 77 and China.
It was also claimed that “the prime minister’s attendance in the conference will demonstrate Pakistan’s support and solidarity with the Least Developed Countries in their pursuit of social development and economic success.”
Moreover, the spokesman noted that Pakistan encouraged revitalised global collaborations based on effective ways of implementation, such as South-South Cooperation, in order to pursue the UN 2030 Development Agenda and accomplish the SDGs (SDGs).
