Bilawal Bhutto in no hurry to marry

New York: Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, who is considered one of the most eligible bachelors in Pakistan, has revealed plans to marry, on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

When asked if he plans to marry, Bilawal Bhutto replied, “Of course, I have plans to marry.” But added that he was in “no rush.”

Bilawal Bhutto, the chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), took over as the 37th Foreign Minister of the country in April this year. He is the son of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto and former Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari.

Bilawal Bhutto is considered one of the key architects who helped oust Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan from power in April. The Pakistan foreign minister is currently in New York to attend the 77th session of UNGA.

On Friday, Bilawal Bhutto called for generous international support during the next rehabilitation and reconstruction phases due to the Pakistan floods.

Addressing a news conference on the sidelines of the 77th session of the UNGA, he called for “climate justice” for Pakistan.

According to Bilawal Bhuyyo, the total flood damage in Pakistan was over USD 30 billion, 10 per cent of its gross domestic product (GDP), with one-third of the country under water.
