Indian Defence Minister seek Pakistan’s inclusion in FATF Blacklist
NEW DELHI - Indian Defence Minister seek Pakistan’s inclusion in Financial Action Task Force Blacklist.
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) can blacklist Pakistan anytime for the country's involvement in terror financing, Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said today.
He revealed that Asia Pacific Group of the FATF had put Pakistan in a terror 'blacklist' for its failure to curb funneling of funds to terror groups responsible for scores of terror attacks in India, a claim denied by the FATF Asia Pacific Group.
"The FATF can anytime blacklist Pakistan for terror financing," he said at the Defence Accounts Department Day event.
The Defence Minister said excessive militarisation and focus on wrong policies without financial progress have resulted in a situation such that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is not able to make arrangements for a flight to attend a global event.
Mr Singh's statement came after Imran Khan and his delegation were forced to return to New York after the special jet given to him by the Saudi government developed a technical fault while heading to Islamabad.
