UK to fully support Pakistan on FATF issue: Christian Turner
ISLAMABAD: British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner has 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 said this while talking to Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid 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 said.
Sheikh Rashid expressing concerns on placing Pakistan onto the red list due to Covid-19 pandemic, said the step had disturbed the Pakistani diaspora living in the United Kingdom.
The two sides also reviewed the progress on extradition treaties of wanted people between the two countries and agreed to complete as early as possible.
