He expressed sympathy with the victims of the current floods and said Pakistan was among the countries most vulnerable to climate change and natural calamities.

"The United Nations will work with Pakistan to better prepare it face natural disasters," Ban said.

Welcoming Pakistan's progress in achieving millennium development goals, he said it was important that the Pakistani government further accelerate their efforts to promote education.

He said Pakistan and the UN have agreed to further strengthen partnership in addressing regional and global issues.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Pakistan was working for peace and stability in the region.

Sharif said it was his earnest desire to ease tension with India by starting dialogue and address all outstanding issues, including Jammu and Kashmir.

"Pakistan will continue to exercise restraint and act with responsibility. India will also reciprocate to reduce the prevailing tension. We want to de-escalate tension through diplomacy," Sharif said.
