Pakistan Foreign Office strongly React against Indian media and MEA report on FATF Grey List
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Foreign Office strongly React against Indian media and MEA report on FATF Grey List.
Pakistan has firmly rejected the remarks by the spokesperson of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and outrightly dismissed the fabricated news reports in Indian media falsely claiming another “extension” in Pakistan’s continuation on the Grey List due to “failure” to complete the Action Plan, in the recently concluded virtual Financial Action Task Force (FATF) plenary session.
The Foreign Office (FO) statement read, “We also completely reject the MEA spokesperson’s terrorism-related allegations against Pakistan.”
The spokesperson said that Pakistan was prepared to present its progress report to FATF in the Plenary Meeting which was scheduled for June 2020.
However, FATF decided on April 28 on a general pause for four months in the review process for a number of countries under ICRG (International Cooperation Review Group) assessment including Pakistan due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
