Responding to media queries regarding role of Saudi Arabia in assessment of Pakistan’s FATF Action Plan, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri had rejected the story circulating in a segment of the media as false and baseless.
He had said Pakistan and Saudi Arabia enjoyed strong fraternal ties and the two countries had always cooperated with each other on all matters of bilateral, regional and international importance.
