Pakistan considers raising issue of India's negative role before FATF president

Pakistan considers raising issue of India's negative role before FATF president
July 19, 2021

ISLAMABD (92 News) - The Foreign Office (FO) has said that Islamabad is considering to approach Financial Action Task Force (FATF) president following Indian confession of politicizing the global money laundering and terrorist financing watchdog against Pakistan.

In a statement Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudri said the Indian statement not only exposes its real face but also vindicates Pakistan's longstanding stance on India's negative role in FATF.

The spokesperson said Pakistan has always been highlighting to the international community the politicization of FATF and undermining of its processes by India.

The recent Indian statement is just further corroboration of its continued efforts to use an important technical forum for its narrow political designs against Pakistan.

The FO spokesperson said Pakistan has been exposing India's duplicitous role to the international community in the past and will also bring this recent confession by India to the notice of the FATF and broader international community.

Earlier, the cat out of the bag as Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Sunday admitted the political use of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) against Pakistan.

According to a report published by 'The Print', the Indian external minister admitted that Pakistan is on the grey list of the FATF because of the efforts of Narendra Modi's government. He credited the Modi-led government for its "efforts" to ensure that FATF kept Pakistan on the grey list.

The minister issued the statement while addressing BJP leaders’ training programme on the foreign policy of the government via video link, the outlet said. “Due to us, Pakistan is under the radar of FATF and it was kept [on] the grey list," he added.
