Pakistan faces blacklisting by anti-terror financing body FATF: Nirmala Sithamaran


Pakistan is short of becoming a blacklisted country by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the multilateral body on terror financing, and India is making sure Pakistan is not let off the hook for allowing terrorists activities to emanate from its soil, Defence Minister Nirmala Sithamaran said on Sunday.

Speaking at a session organised by FICCI Ladies Organisation in Chennai, to celebrate Women’s Day, Ms. Sitharaman said, “When it came to the question of financial action that has to be taken against terror funding, the FATF as it is popularly called, Pakistan is short of becoming a black listed country.

That’s also because we are making sure that Pakistan is not let off the hook.” Reiterating India’s position on the IAF strike at Balakot, she said it was a targeted, pointed strike at a terror training camp. Read More
