Recent unprecedented session of OIC hosted by Pakistan to curb plight of Afghan people is yielding positive results

Dr. Khurram Iqbal (IR Expert): The recent unprecedented session of OIC hosted by Pakistan to curb the plight of Afghan people is yielding positive results. The 17th extraordinary session was termed as mini United Nations and Pakistan categorically urged the international community to avert the imminent humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The war torn country is facing economic turmoil that will result in an influx of refugees into neighboring countries. The threat of terrorism is still pertinent in the contemporary Afghanistan. Still, funding is not the permanent solution for Afghanistan. The long term solution of the Afghan crisis is the recognition of the incumbent Taliban government by the international community. The multilateral forums have only made pledges to help Afghanistan but nothing has been done in praxis. The regional countries should step forward and follow the footsteps of Pakistan in helping the devastated Afghanistan.
