Srinagar: The United States (US) has failed to find partners in its bid to put Pakistan on the global terror financing watch-list during an ongoing conference in Paris, media reports said on Wednesday.
The six-day conference of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) continues in the French capital. The meeting was due to vote on a US motion to put Pakistan on the global terror watch-list.
But, Pak Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said that the US has failed in its bid against Pakistan.
“Our efforts paid, FATF Paris 20 February meeting conclusion on US-led motion to put Pakistan on watch-list. No consensus for nominating Pakistan. Proposing three months pause and asking APG (Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering) for another report to be considered in June. Grateful to friends who helped,” Asif said in a tweet.
He said that there was ‘no consensus on nominating Pakistan for the list’ and that he was ‘grateful to the friends who helped’ in the process.
Asif also said that the Financial Action Task Force has asked Asia Pacific Group on Money Laundering to submit another report in June 2018.
