Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that there would be a public holiday in Islamabad on Monday, December 20, 2021, for the security of the various delegations to the 17th Extra-Ordinary OIC Session, who will be departing to return to their country on that date.
The declaration of a public holiday in Islamabad on Monday, December 20, 2021, is not in conflict with the list of 2021 public holidays in Pakistan, previously announced in the "expected dates for public and optional holidays for the calendar year 2021" published by the Government of Pakistan, late last year (2020-12-10), as that list does not cover regional or municipal public holidays, which occur somewhat regularly in Pakistan's capital, Islamabad (2021-03-22, 2019-02-16, 2013-08-20, 2012-11-21 and 2010-12-17).
