United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Wednesday termed the 17th extraordinary session of OIC Council of Foreign Ministers an example of the determination to help those in-need, lauding Pakistan for successfully organising the event.

“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 Twitter post this evening.

“We thank Pakistan for hosting this vital meeting and inviting the global community to continue cooperating to support the Afghan people,” he added.

The State Secretary also used the hashtag #OIC4Afg in his tweet to express his support and solidarity for the cause.

The successful hosting of the 17th Extraordinary Session of the OIC’s Council of Foreign Ministers on Afghanistan drew worldwide applause for Pakistan for making the global community awake to the deteriorating humanitarian and economic situation in the war-torn country.
