The United States Department of State on Saturday joined the United Nations in recognising Pakistani education activist and Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai as one of the ‘most significant’ people of the decade.

Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells said, “As we approach the end of 2019, we join UN in looking back on most significant people & events of the decade, including Malala, who received the 2014 Nobel Prize in recognition of her struggle against oppression of young people & for the right of all children to education.”

The United Nations (UN) had earlier this week declared Malala as “the most famous teenager in the world” in its Decade in Review.
