Media outlets have published misleading and baseless stories about the French position on Pakistan’s engagement with FATF.
It has been noticed that some media outlets have published misleading and baseless stories about the French position on Pakistan’s engagement with FATF.
It is clarified France, like many other jurisdictions, has been an active partner of Pak during the implementation of its ICRG Action Plan and it has also provided tech support and guidance to Pakistan.
Pakistan has given a high-level political commitment to FATF for implementation of the Action Plan and is resolved to maintaining its momentum for improving its AML/CFT regime.
Over the last 2 years, Pakistan has made concerted efforts in this direction, which have also been recognized by the international community.
The Ministry would urge all to avoid any speculative, sensational or unsubstantiated reporting which could undermine our international cooperation and good will.
FATF will announce its future course of action on Pakistan’s Action Plan after conclusion of its Plenary meeting on 25 June 2021.
