Pakistan has urged United Nations collective action to meet humanitarian needs of millions of displaced around the world.

Addressing to the UN Economic and Social Council, the Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi hoped that the international community's response to the world's weak and vulnerable is based on compassion and a spirit of brother-hood.

Ambassador Lodhi also urged the international community to prioritize the issue of Afghan refugees and help Pakistan and Afghanistan in their repatriation and resettlement in an honourable and sustainable manner.
