ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—Pakistan said Tuesday that it was in talks with Russia over importing wheat, as it struggles to make up for crops and food stocks washed away by massive floods, which have killed more than 1,100 people.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif appealed for the world to provide more help for Pakistan, saying there was a “yawning gap” between aid promised so far and the scale of the disaster.
