The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has announced
that the Nigerian government has provided $1 million to the Afghanistan
Humanitarian Trust Fund.
The OIC announced today that it will continue to provide assistance
to the needy in Afghanistan, saying that the money will help address the
situation of millions in the country, including women and children.
The statement added that the OIC is committed to supporting
the people of Afghanistan and will make every effort to fully implement the
special resolution on Afghanistan issued at the last extraordinary meeting of
the Council of Foreign Ministers in December 2021 in Pakistan.
The organization called on all Islamic countries to continue
their assistance through the bank account created for the Afghanistan
Humanitarian Trust at the Islamic Development Bank.
Islamic countries pledged at a recent UN summit in Pakistan
that they would work to establish a humanitarian aid mechanism for Afghanistan
and continue to work with the United Nations to release frozen Afghan assets.
