The United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, thanked actor Mahira Khan and all Pakistanis for their support on Monday night, after his four-day Pakistan trip wrapped up.
The UN Chief spoke at an international press conference titled ’40 years of Afghan Refugees Presence in Pakistan: A New Partnership for Solidarity’, where he lauded Pakistan for being “the world’s second largest refugee-hosting country.”
During his trip, he also met Mahira Khan, who was appointed as a UN Goodwill Ambassador in November and is working with the UN Refugee Agency. He expressed gratitude for Mahira’s continuous support of Afghan refugees in Pakistan.
In a tweet, Guterres said: “As we mark 40 years of Pakistan’s solidarity with Afghan refugees, it was a pleasure to meet Refugees Goodwill Ambassador Mahira Khan. I thank her and all Pakistanis for their extraordinary support.”
