The committee was informed that Afghanistan is currently in the throes of a severe famine during the harsh winter. While expressing concern over the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, the committee pledged that Pakistan would not abandon the Afghans at this crucial time. Pakistan pledged to give full support to the Afghan people to avert the humanitarian crisis, said a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office. He also renewed his appeal to the international community and relief agencies to provide assistance at this critical juncture to avert economic collapse and save precious lives in Afghanistan. Prime Minister Khan also ordered relevant authorities to explore bilateral cooperation with friendly countries as well as avert humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan by exporting skilled and trained manpower, especially in medical fields, IT, finance and accounting. He also ordered to expand cooperation in the fields of railways, minerals, pharmaceuticals and media to help Afghanistan’s rehabilitation process. The meeting was attended by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad, Prime Minister’s Trade Adviser Abdul Razzak Dawood, National Security Adviser Dr Moeed Yousuf and Army Chief of Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa among others.
