India Reminds Pakistan for Curbing Terror Financing

On Friday, the FATF plenary session in Orlando, U.S., issued a strict statement at the end of its outcome document. The FATF plenary session warned Pakistan that it could face a next step in its next session in October, if it did not follow the 27-point checklist on bringing stern rules and laws to stop the terror financing to its main terror groups including, al-Qaeda, Lashar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad.

In reaction MEA (Ministry of external Affairs) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Saturday that India expected Pakistan to take all necessary steps to effectively implement the FATF Action Plan within the time boundary that is September 2019.
Meanwhile, Pakistan pointed out that FATF had accepted that Pakistan had taken some steps. Pakistan also reminds that its present Government had changed some laws and shut downed many outfits run by the terror groups. Pakistan also in the past accused India for politicizing the proceedings at the FATF, and this was denied by Indian Government.

However Pakistan Government hopes for clean chit from the FATF in order to counter its economic crisis. Pakistan is in the process of accepting a loan from the International Monetary Fund.
