“There is a huge discrepancy between the developed world and the developing world. The US announced a coronavirus relief package of $2.2 trillion for their people, Germany $1 trillion and Japan $1 trillion. In contrast, we have come up with a relief package of $8 billion for our 220 million people,” the prime minister said.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Imran Khan in a special message for the international community and United Nations secretary-general on Sunday called for a comprehensive relief package for the developing economies struggling to contain the deadly coronavirus.

He said that saving people from hunger was one of the biggest worries other than dealing with the economic crisis and the pandemic. “I appeal to the world leaders and the secretary-general of the United Nations to launch a comprehensive initiative to give debt relief to developing countries so that they can fight the coronavirus,” Khan said.
