ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogPARIS: Pakistan's Interior Minister warned Tuesday night against adding the nation's name to a watchlist of countries that financially aid terrorism. Ahsan Iqbal, while speaking ahead of a meeting of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), stressed that if Pakistan's name is added to the "watchlist", it will negatively impact the war against terrorism. FATF is a global body that combats terrorist financing and money laundering. Earlier, a delegation ? led by Syed Mansoor Shah, the Director-General of the Financial Monitoring Unit and comprising other members of the Foreign and Interior ministries ? reached Paris to defend the country's position at the FATF meeting. The delegation came into motion after a resolution ? sponsored by the United States and supported by its allies ? was put forward to consider placing Pakistan on a watchlist of countries that financially aid terrorism. Dr Miftah Ismail in Paris Adviser to the prime minister on financial affairs Dr Miftah Ismail also reached Paris to attend the same meeting. According to official sources, Ismail visited Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands last week in an attempt to garner support against the US move. Of the FATF's 35 permanent members, only China supported Pakistan, while the rest were likely to fall behind the US resolution, the sources said. On February 16, Heather Nauert ? the spokesperson for the US Department of State ? said a resolution to place Pakistan on the global terror-financing watchlist had been submitted to the FATF. She elaborated that the US had been concerned about Pakistan's actions for a long time. Impact of FATF placing Pak on watchlist Reacting to the US move, the Foreign Office said Pakistan has serious concerns regarding the American resolution. Pakistan's international credit rating could suffer a setback as a result of being placed on the list, as several global financial institutions are influenced by the FATF, which includes around 700 members in total, including the United Nations, European Commission, International Monetary Fund and World Bank.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogInterior Minister Ahsan Iqbal/File photo LAHORE: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Saturday said the bid by some western countries to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist is a political act. Speaking to media in Lahore, the interior minister said the West wants to pressurise Pakistan to achieve certain objectives, because of which it is pushing to place the country on the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) watchlist. The United States earlier this month put forward a motion to place Pakistan on the FATF watchlist. The FATF, an intergovernmental body based in Paris, sets global standards for fighting illicit finance. Iqbal shared concern that such pressure tactics would negatively impact Pakistan?s efforts in the war against terrorism. Pakistan has been scrambling in recent months to avert being added to a list of countries deemed non-compliant with terrorist financing regulations by the FATF, a measure that officials fear could hurt its economy. US moves to put Pakistan on global terrorist-financing watchlist A meeting of FATF member states is due to take place next week in Paris, where the motion on Pakistan could be adopted The country?s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, said earlier this week that the United States and Britain put forward the motion, and later persuaded France and Germany to co-sponsor it. Pakistan was working with the US, UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn, he added. To a question, the interior minister said that the decision relating to placing of names on the Exit Control List (ECL) would be made on merit. He emphasised that the ECL should not be made a political tool. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday formally requested the Ministry of Interior to place former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar's names on the ECL, in connection to the references relating to Azizia Mills, Flagship and Avenfield properties.

Speaking on Geo News' show 'Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath', Ismail said they are in talks with 25, 30 countries and many of these countries have appreciated Pakistan's steps. "We have been working and telling the world our stance. The reason for which they want to put us on watchlist...we have ended that very reason." He said there is positive feedback from officials and states they have been talking to and it appears that Pakistan will not be put on the watchlist. US moves to put Pakistan on global terrorist-financing watchlist A meeting of FATF member states is due to take place next week in Paris, where the motion on Pakistan could be adopted Responding to a question about the motion being focused on Hafiz Saeed and India's allegations, the PM's advisor said the process has become "India-inspired, India-centric" and that an international organisation like FATF is doing so because of conspiracies of one country. He, however, said that there were loopholes in their laws. "As far as these technical issues or the legal loopholes are concerned, we are ready to talk to them (FATF), if it would be on technical level and not political." Ismail called it "injustice" to single out an individual or organisation. "When we feel that the whole process is India-inspired and they have only been singling out one organisation or one individual, then this is injustice." He said that Pakistan has fulfilled its international commitments and obligations under the UN charter. "We have fulfilled our obligations and expect the world fraternity to understand that Pakistan is meeting its reasonable expectations," the PM's advisor said. "After all this, what India wants is mischief," he concluded.

Reuters FILE ISLAMABAD: The United States has put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist with an anti-money laundering monitoring group, according to a senior Pakistani official. A meeting of FATF member states is due to take place next week in Paris, where the organisation could adopt the motion on Pakistan. Pakistan has been scrambling in recent months to avert being added to a list of countries deemed non-compliant with terrorist financing regulations by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), a measure officials fear could hurt its economy. Pakistan?s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, told Reuters the United States and Britain put forward the motion several weeks ago, and later persuaded France and Germany to co-sponsor it. "We are now working with the US, UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn," Ismail said, speaking by telephone from Europe. "We are also quite hopeful that even if the US did not withdraw the nomination that we will prevail and not be put on the watchlist." Pakistan was previously on the FATF watchlist from 2012 to 2015.
