Flood recovery will take years: Zardari

"Your guess is as good as mine, but three years is a minimum," Zardari told reporters when asked how long it would take Pakistan to go through reconstruction and rehabilitation after the floods.

"I don't think Pakistan will ever fully recover but we will move on," the president was quoted as saying by Dawn News.

The country's worst natural disaster has killed over 1,600 people and affected about 20 million nationwide, with the threat of disease ever-present in the camps sheltering survivors.
