UNITED NATIONS:

Pakistan has called on the world community to reaffirm its commitment for poverty eradication, promotion of full employment, and fostering of social inclusion through transformative action, in a bid to empower people.

“Let us make this the decade of social development, ” Pakistani delegate Saima Saleem told the United Nations General Assembly’s Third Committee, which deals with social, humanitarian and cultural matters.

Speaking in a debate on social development, she said that, as the social contract in Islam is based in equity, social justice and inclusion, Pakistan had taken measures to create an inclusive welfare society.
