SOUNDBITE: (English) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Pakistani Foreign Minister:"While I think that it is fantastic to talk about building back better not just domestically here in the United States, but internationally. And that's exactly the role we've seen of the U.S. on the world stage as a leader in various fields. And absolutely of the fight for climate change. We expect the United States to be one of the leading players. I think we've not yet seen and that doesn't mean we won't see the translation of this vision to practicalities on the ground. I think Pakistan and other climate stressed countries provide an opportunity to realize this vision."ASSOCIATED PRESSARCHIVE: Nowshera, Pakistan – 30 August 202212.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Pakistani Foreign Minister: ++COVERED++"As far as global commitments, and it's not fair to just say the United States, I mean, I think sort of the group of countries that have made this commitment that was at the last COP that $100 billion annually for climate was to be raised. Unfortunately, we did discover once the flood and the devastation took place that actually no, that pledge has not been lived up to."STORYLINE:Pakistan's Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has appealed for climate relief amid catastrophic flooding in Pakistan. In an interview with the Associated Press, Zardari said the climate disaster is affecting Pakistani women and children disproportionately. Pakistan is seeking climate justice and looking toward its partners for assistance in recovering from the calamity."Pakistan's global carbon emissions are 0.8 percent, but we are amongst the ten most climate stressed countries on the planet, and the climate catastrophe that we are facing today is not of our making," Zardari said.The devastation wreaked by the floods this summer in Pakistan has also highlighted the disproportionate effect of climate change on impoverished nations. Experts say Pakistan is responsible for only 0.4% of the world’s historic emissions blamed for climate change. ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
