This came during the remarks delivered by HE Permanent Representative of State of Qatar to the European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva Hind Bint Abdul Rahman Al Muftah during her participation in the joint launch of 2022 Pakistan Floods Response Plan organized by the government of Pakistan and United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Geneva.
