- Pakistan still in FATF's gray list, next organization meeting in October
- The terrorists who are banned are associated with small organizations of Taliban and Al Qaeda
Pakistan imposed restrictions on 88 terrorists ahead of a meeting of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in October. Its purpose is to avoid being blacklisted. Pakistan is currently in the gray list. The terrorists who have been banned are mainly associated with small organizations of IS, Al Qaeda and Taliban.
If Pakistan remains in the gray list of the FATF or is blacklisted, it will be impossible to get loans from other organizations including the IMF.
Tried this earlier also
This is not the first time that Pakistan has taken action against terrorists or terrorist organizations before the FATF meeting. In May last year too, he took action against 8 terrorist organizations. This time 88 terrorists have been banned. The bank accounts and properties of these terrorists have been sealed. Also, a travel ban has also been imposed on them. A few days ago the UN also released the Terrorist List. Many of these terrorists are present in Pakistan.
What did the foreign ministry say
Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said in a statement – We are taking steps according to the UN Charter. We hope that other countries will do the same, supporting Pakistan's move. Prime Minister Imran Khan held a cabinet meeting on Friday before these terrorists were banned. It discussed about the country's economy and the FATF meeting.
Pakistan in gray list for two years
Pakistan's economic condition is extremely poor. Saudi Arabia has categorically refused to give him loans and oil. Not only this, the Saudi government has clearly told Pakistan that it will have to repay the debt of $ 6.2 billion by the end of this year. Pakistan has been on the gray list since June 2018. The FATF gave a 27-point demand letter to Pakistan. All these conditions are to be met by September. The organization will review it in October.
