A day earlier, Imran endorsed a call by former British prime minister Gordon Brown seeking an international donor conference to help the Afghans. He had said it was a global obligation to provide immediate humanitarian relief to millions of Afghans, who were facing an imminent danger of starvation during the ongoing winter.

In his tweet, the prime minister had also reminded the world that providing immediate relief to impoverished Afghanistan was also obligatory under the unanimously adopted UN Principle of Responsibility to Protect (R2P).
