In a meeting held at the Foreign Office Tuesday, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Ambassador Blome discussed issues regarding the rehabilitation of the population affected by the catastrophic floods across Pakistan, Geo News reported.

The foreign minister, in the meeting, thanked the US ambassador for ensuring the provision of aid and assistance to the affected people. The two dignitaries also spoke about advancing mutual relations during their discussion in the Foreign Office.
