Bangladesh has decided to support Afghan people through humanitarian aid package in the form of food and medicinal assistance.
While appreciating the OIC for calling for extraordinary Council, Bangladesh has also urged the leaders to intensify cooperation within and beyond OIC in support to the Afghan people.
Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen conveyed this during the 17th Extraordinary Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC on Afghanistan held in Islamabad, Pakistan on Sunday.
The Foreign Secretary led the Bangladesh delegation which includes Bangladesh Ambassador to Saudi Arabia and Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to OIC, Bangladesh High Commissioner to Pakistan and the Director-General of International Organization, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
During the Council meeting, Momen expressed deep concern on economic and humanitarian crisis looming on the larger part of the Afghan population due to acute shortage of food, shelter and social services which may further be worsened as winter approaches.
