US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has applauded Pakistan for hosting the 17th Extraordinary Session of the Organization of Islamic Corporation’s Council (OIC) of Foreign Ministers.
He said that the gathering reflected the international community’s collective resolve to help the people of Afghanistan.
“The OIC Extraordinary Session on Afghanistan is a prime example of our collective determination and action to help those most in need,” Blinken said in a tweet.
“We thank Pakistan for hosting this vital meeting & inviting the global community to continue cooperating to support the Afghan people,” US Secretary added.
The summit organized by Pakistan in the federal capital was attended by about 70 delegations from OIC member states, non-members, and regional and international organizations.
The OIC summit focused on the looming economic and humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan after the Taliban returned to power in August while the US-led foreign forces were still pulling out of the war-battered country.
