Due to lack of resources, Can’t Help Pakistan as we did in 2010: US

Consul of the US Department of State, Derrick Sholette, has said that, unlike the 2010 flood, the reason for the decrease in US aid during the recent floods is not Pakistan-US relations, but lack of resources.

Speaking to the BBC from Washington, Derek Sholett said that the situation was different in 2010.

Derek Shoulet visited Pakistan earlier this month, where he was convinced to provide 55 million dollars in connection with the flood disaster, in addition to the celebration of the 75-year resolution of Pakistan-US relations.

It should be noted that observers criticize the slow United Nations reaction to recent floods in Pakistan.

According to Derek Shulett, the reason for a clear decline in assistance is not coldness in relationships, but the global economic crisis and war in Ukraine.

He said that “economic difficulties are getting worse everywhere in the world and Europe is currently experiencing the biggest human tragedy because of the war in Ukraine.”

“The European Union has spent most of its resources for this year but we need to understand that it might take months for flood victims to recover, so we must be prepared to help.”

When discussing this further, he said that ‘As long as I live in Pakistan, the UN Secretary-General was also there and he also explained that more assistance will be given in this matter.’
