The Diplomatic Informer Magazine wishes to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Government and People of Pakistan following the devastating floods which have hit the country.
Our prayers are with the people of Pakistan, the families of the victims, the injured and all those affected by this natural calamity and we hope for an early restoration of normalcy.
Flash floods triggered by destructive monsoon rains across much of Pakistan have killed more than 1,000 people and injured and displaced thousands more since June, officials have said.
The new death toll came a day after the prime minister, Shehbaz. More than 33 million people have been displaced.
The government declared a state of emergency to deal with monsoon flooding, which began in June and continues to wreak havoc in Pakistan.
The extreme weather event, which follows some of the highest recorded temperatures across South Asia, is a “climate catastrophe,” Sherry Rehman, Pakistan’s federal Minister for Climate Change, said in a news interview posted on her Twitter feed.
