ISLAMABAD - Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani has canceled a visit to the United States to attend the UN General Assembly session because of floods which have hit southern Pakistan, his office said on Friday.

Pakistani leaders were widely accused of neglecting victims of last year's floods and the government is again seen as moving too slowly in the latest crisis.

"The prime minister has canceled his visit because of the floods and now the foreign minister will represent Pakistan on the visit," said an official in Gilani's office.
