New York: On Thursday, US President Biden and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif met at a reception for world leaders attending the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.

The US President invited Prime Minister Shahbaz and other foreign leaders to the reception.
Biden and the Prime Minister of Pakistan are speaking for the first time. Since becoming the nation’s president, Biden has not spoken to former Pakistani prime ministers Imran Khan or Shahbaz Sharif.

Although informal, the contest is notable given that Pakistan was largely ignored by the US administration during Imran’s regime. However, talks between the two countries have flared since the change in leadership.

Earlier, during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Biden passionately argued in favor of providing aid to Pakistan, where floods have wreaked havoc.

In his speech, he committed an additional $2.9 billion in funding to combat global food insecurity, adding to the $6.9 billion the US government committed earlier this year.

A top adviser to the US Secretary of State visited Pakistan earlier this month, and the Biden administration also approved the purchase of $450 million worth of F-16 equipment to Pakistan.
