ISLAMABAD    -    Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is a fan of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. The FM recently had a ‘fan moment’ with one of his favoU­rites, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Bilawal has been in the US since September 19 and attended the 77th session of the United Nations Gen­eral Assembly (UNGA) in New York yesterday where he met several global leaders. However, he was blown away when he met ‘superwoman’ Jacinda Arden.

In a tweet yesterday, the Foreign Minister re­ferred to his meeting with PM Ardern as “his big­gest fan moment of UNGA,” and noted that she is the second woman after his mother, Benazir Bhut­to, to give birth while serving as Prime Minister.

“Biggest fan moment of #UNGA. Was meeting @jacindaardern superwoman PM of New Zea­land. After my mother the second head of gov­ernment to give birth in office. She told me her daughter was born on the 21st of June, same as shaheed Benazir Bhutto!” he tweeted.

He happily added that Ardern had told him that her daughter Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford’s date of birth – June 21- is the same as Benazir Bhutto’s.

Earlier this year, New Zealand premier paid homage to the late Benazir Bhutto in her Harvard University Commencement address.

She stated: “I met Benazir Bhutto in Geneva in June of 2007. We both attended a conference that drew together progressive parties from around the world. Seven months later she was assassinated”.
