Pakistan fulfilled almost all technical requirements of FATF: FM Qureshi
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday said Pakistan had completed the technical requirements with regard to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
“Pakistan had been given 27 action items; out of which work on 26 has been completed. While vigorous work has also been done on the 27th point,” said Shah Mahmood.
The foreign minister said, in this situation, there was no justification to keep Pakistan in the grey list. He said India wanted to use the forum for political purpose, but it should not be allowed for this.
He said Pakistan had taken solid steps to curb money-laundering and terrorist financing.
On April 22, British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner had said his country would fully support Pakistan on the issue of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) as Islamabad’s performance on the implementation of the FATF roadmap was marvellous.
He had said this while talking to Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed in Islamabad.
The minister had 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.
