Provided $128m in debt relief to Pakistan, says US

The United States (US) Embassy in Islamabad tweeted on Thursday that the country provided $128 million in debt relief to Pakistan in 2020 under the G20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative.

“Through efforts like this, the U.S. and Pakistan are working together to redirect critical resources to the #COVID19 pandemic response,” it said.

Earlier in Sept, Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan had urged G20 states and world economic bodies to grant debt relief to developing countries as their economies were hit hard by the coronavirus.
