The Secretary-General indicated that dedicating the OIC Youth Day came as an affirmation of the centrality of youth issues in the OIC priorities and an opportunity to commend the contributions of young people in improving our world and to highlight their essential role in the development and in building and strengthening peace and dialogue and combating extremism and terrorism in the Member States. The Secretary-General called on the Member States and the international community to join efforts to enhance the role of young men and women in development so that they are effective partners in efforts to advance the economic and social situation in the world.
