Federal Ministers Say India Politicising, Undermining FATF Process
Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar has said that India is ‘actively’ engaged in politicising and undermining the technical processes and spirit of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
In a tweet today on Monday, Hammad said, “Our progress is nevertheless undeniable and we shall soon be completing our both action plans.”
He said the statement of Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar only confirmed what Pakistan had been saying all along.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan has consistently maintained that India has politicised the FATF and “the recent Indian statements made clear their mal-intent.”
“Manipulating an important technical forum for narrow political designs against Pakistan is disgraceful but not surprising for the Modi government,” the foreign minister said in a tweet.
On Sunday last, Jaishankar had admitted that the Narendra Modi government ensured that Pakistan remained on the grey list of FATF.
