Is the FATF a technical forum or a political one ?: Foreign Minister
Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi, referring to Pakistan’s retention in the FATF gray list, said that it is necessary to determine whether the FATF is a technical forum or a political one.
Talking to media, Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that FATF had given us 27 points.
“It is being acknowledged that we have fully implemented 26 points, but we have now been given the task of implementing six more points,” he said.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that in such a situation, it is not possible to keep Pakistan on the gray list.
He said it is important to determine whether the FATF was a technical forum or a political one.
The Foreign Minister further said that it must be seen that this forum is not being used for political purposes.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi also says that some forces want the sword to hang over Pakistan’s head.
