“Pakistan, and the Pakistani people didn't create this crisis that they are today falling victims of. Our global carbon output is 0.8 percent. But we are still amongst the 10 top climate stressed countries on the planet. It is not the climate emission of the villages in Dadu, Qambar Shahdadkot, Nasirabad, D.G. Khan or D.I. Khan that created global warming. But these 33 million Pakistanis today are paying in the form of their lives and the livelihoods for the industrialization of bigger countries. And what we seek is not charity, not arms, not aid, But justice.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pakistan:
“Going forward, as we confront reconstruction and rehabilitation, we hope to do so in a greener way. We hope to build back better, a more sustainable infrastructure, be it irrigation infrastructure, be it our communication infrastructure, be it our agriculture infrastructure. We see the opportunity in this crisis for Pakistan to build back better in a more climate resilient manner.”

7 SOUNDBITE (English) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pakistan:
“The donors conference can only take place once you have a comprehensive damage needs assessment necessary and a complete dossier about all the necessary actions that need to be taken. The damage needs assessment cannot be accurately completed until the floodwaters truly recede. And if you were to visit areas of Dadu around Manchar Lake, or other areas of the province of Sindh, there's still incredible amounts of flooding damage. So, as this water recedes, you will get a comprehensive damage needs assessment done and we will be in a place to hold a donor's conference hopefully before the end of the year.”

STORYLINE
The Foreign Minister of Pakistan, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari today (23 Sep) said, “33 million Pakistanis today are paying in the form of their lives and the livelihoods for the industrialization of bigger countries.”

Talking to reporters in New York, Bhutto Zardari said, “Pakistan, and the Pakistani people didn't create this crisis that they are today falling victims of. Our global carbon output is 0.8 percent. But we are still amongst the 10 top climate stressed countries on the planet.”

He said, it was not the climate emission of flood-affected villages such as Dadu, Qambar Shahdadkot, Nasirabad, D.G. Khan or D.I. Khan “that created global warming.”

The Foreign Minister said, “what we seek is not charity, not arms, not aid, But justice.”

Going forward, he said, “we see the opportunity in this crisis for Pakistan to build back better in a more climate resilient manner.”

Bhutto Zardari said a donors’ conference will take place “hopefully before the end of the year.”

He said “the damage needs assessment cannot be accurately completed until the floodwaters truly recede. And if you were to visit areas of Dadu around Manchar Lake, or other areas of the province of Sindh, there's still incredible amounts of flooding damage.”

Close to eight million people have been displaced by the disaster. Southern Sindh province is still in crisis, with many areas still under water.

To date, more than 1,500 people have been killed, including 552 children.
