FATF Pakistan and France
After a plenary virtual meeting of the Financial Action Task Force
(FATF) in Paris from February 22 to 25, it was decided to keep
Pakistan on the gray. ATF says that Pakistan has made full progress
on the proposals, completed 24 out of 27 points, After 4 months We
will see the implementation of Pakistan’s action plan is, whether it
should be removed from the gray list or it should be called a ‘do
Pakistan was put on the gray list in 2018
Putting Pakistan on the gray list in 2018, it was said that Pakistan
meets only 13 of the 40 recommendations of the FATF and was
given one year to implement the 27 recommendations. Pakistan’s
neighboring country India has increasingly tried to blacklist Pakistan
and many times India’s senior ministers have blacklisted Pakistan.
Why did France oppose removing Pakistan from the gray list
According to reports from the recent FATF meeting, France, a rival
India has opposed the removal of Pakistan from the FATF’s
gray list. What is the reason for Pakistan’s open opposition?
Pakistani government’s response to the re-display of insulting
images of the Prophet of Islam in recent months? Both are
questions that need to be understood. India and France
seem to be on the same page with regard to Pakistan, as India has
recently entered into several defense production agreements with
France, including a deal for a state-of-the-art Rafale fighter jet.
Pakistan has to move forward understanding the situation
Pakistan needs to understand its situation and move forward and
for this, it has to focus on its relations with the European Union. It is
clear that many times the policy of France is not in line with the
policy of the European Union.
What is FATF
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is a global anti-money
laundering body, aimed at monitoring and imposing economic
sanctions on countries that do not co-operate in global counter-
terrorism efforts. The gray list is actually a temporary or interim list
of the Financial Action Task Force,
A country can’t do business anywhere in the world and international
financial institutions stop aid to such a country. Pakistan, which has
been suffering from economic instability for a long time, has been
on the gray list and this situation is exacerbating its problems.
Pakistan will spare no effort to get the country off the gray list by
fully implementing FATF’s recommendations.
