A Modest Proposal
Pakistan has been flooded. Pakistan has nuclear weapons. The UN wants nuclear disarmament. Why doesn't the UN arrange a purchase of Pakistan's nuclear weapons stockpile in return for increased emergency aid from donor nations and ask the US to transport it to its reprocessing facility (as was done with some Soviet warheads)? India can then reduce its stockpile (unless it fears China as much as Pakistan) and money can be spent by Pakistan and India on their poor instead of their inferiority complexes. Simples.
