US thanks Pakistan for hosting OIC Session on Afghanistan

The United States on Wednesday thanked Pakistan for hosting a “vital” session of the Organisation of Islamic Council (OIC) on Afghanistan.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in a statement on Twitter, said: “The OIC Extraordinary Session on Afghanistan is a prime example of our collective determination and action to help those most in need.”

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

Pakistan hosted the 17th extraordinary session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the OIC last Sunday, where Muslim nations resolved to work with the United Nations to try to unlock hundreds of millions of dollars in frozen Afghan assets in a bid to tackle a growing humanitarian crisis.

At the special meeting in the capital, the delegates said they would work “to unlock the financial and banking channels to resume liquidity and flow of financial and humanitarian assistance”.
