Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto on Sunday called off his official visits to the European capitals in the wake of worsening flood situation in parts of Sindh.

FM Bilawal was scheduled to fly to Germany on Monday (today) on the first leg of his first tour of the EU countries since assuming office.

A revised schedule with the same itinerary will be announced soon, a source in the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) said.

The foreign minister was to visit Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway from 22 to 26 August at the invitation of his counterparts as part of a renewed push to seek deeper cooperation with the 27-member bloc, one of the largest trading partners of Pakistan.

The decision to postpone the trip came a day after two more districts in Sindh were declared “calamity-hit”, taking the total to 13 following catastrophic rains and flooding.
