Maximum points raised by FATF against Pakistan addressed: minister
ISLAMABAD: Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar has said that incumbent government is making all-out efforts to remove reservations raised by the Financial Action Task Force (FATA).
“Maximum points raised by the FATF against Pakistan have been addressed. Action is being taken to resolve last three points made by the FATF authorities,” Hammad Azhar said in an interview with a local TV channel.
He said anti-Pakistan forces played negative role but the government had made serious efforts to avert such designs. He hoped that FATF would clear Pakistan from grey list.
On Apr 22, British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner had said his country would fully support Pakistan on the issue of the FATF as Islamabad’s performance on the implementation of the FATF roadmap was marvellous.
He said this while talking to Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed in Islamabad.
The minister said Pakistan had so far implemented 24 out of 27 points of the FATF roadmap.
“Pakistan and the United Kingdom have a long history of bilateral relations and we give immense value to them,” he had said.
