News about French position on Pakistan’s engagement with FATF rejected

Staff Reporter

Pakistan has dispelled the misleading and baseless news stories about French position on Pakistan’s engagement with FATF published by some media outlets.

A clarification issued by Finance Division on Wednesday stated that France, like many other jurisdictions, has been an active partner of Pakistan during the implementation of its ICRG Action Plan and it has also provided technical support and guidance to Pakistan.

Pakistan has given 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 two 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.
