Earlier, whenever I came to Pakistan, I found the Pakistani people to be hospitable to the Afghan people. But today Pakistanis themselves are suffering from major natural calamities.
She called upon the international community to do more to help the Pakistani flood victims and said that:
The world should wake up to the situation in Pakistan. Countries less susceptible to climate change face more destruction and deaths than others.
The Hollywood actress repeatedly vowed to come to Pakistan to help the victims and said that in this hour of trouble, my heart is with the people. On this occasion, she praised the Pakistan Army for helping the flood victims.
