The Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mehmood Qureshi while questioning the status of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has said that it needs to be determined whether FATF is a political or technical body.
The statement of FM comes after FATF has decided to keep Pakistan on the grey list, with instructions to work on one remaining action item (out of a total of 27) on the FATF action plan, in addition to 6 points raised under the Asia Pacific Group’s Mutual Evaluation Report (MER).
However, the foreign minister said Pakistan has made “significant progress on the 27th point as well”, according to Aaj TV.
“If the task force is technical, then Pakistan was given 27 action items. Significant progress has been made on the 27th point and we intend to do more.
“In my view, in such a situation, there is no reason to keep Pakistan on the grey list,” FM Qureshi said.
