ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has offered to host the “extraordinary” session of the Council of Foreign Minister of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) convened by Saudi Arabia to discuss the latest situation in Afghanistan.
“Pakistan fully endorses this initiative. We also offered to host this meeting in Islamabad on the 17th of December 2021. We are confident that the OIC member states will endorse this offer,” Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said in a video message on Monday.
He said Afghanistan was the founding member of the OIC, and as part of the Islamic Ummah, “we are bound by fraternal bonds of amity and brotherhood with the people of Afghanistan. Today, our Afghan brothers and sisters need us more than ever before,” he said.
