ISLAMABAD – Pakistan has announced a token contribution of 25,000 dollars to the Secretary General’s Peacebuilding Fund, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Wednesday.

Speaking in virtual High-Level Replenishment Conference for UN Secretary General’s Peacebuilding Fund, Qureshi underscored Pakistan’s longstanding political, human and financial commitment to United Nation’s endeavors in peacekeeping and peacebuilding.

Foreign Minister also reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to multilateral cooperation for preserving peace, preventing conflict, and realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
