India Using FATF Platform To Corner Pakistan For Supporting Terror Organizations


Pakistan has alleged that India is attempting to use the FATF platform (Financial Action Task Force) to put pressure on Islamabad to take concrete action against terrorist organisations that are being operated from Pakistan.

The Indian delegation tried to corner Pakistan on the issues of Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD), Falah-i-Insaaniyat Foundation (FIF), Lashkar-e-Taiba, and Jaish-e-Mohammed during a Joint Review Group meeting of the FATF, according to sources who attended these meetings. The Indians also tried to probe about the steps taken by Pakistan against Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar.

Because of the Indian delegation probing, Pakistan faced a tough time but the delegation did not respond to specific questions about individual entities, the sources said. Pakistan attended the review group meetings of the FATF, held in Australia from January 8 to 10.

The review group discussed progress in four key areas – Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment report, Customs department report on cash couriers, implementation of United Nations Security Council resolutions, and inter-agency coordination. Read More
