Foreign Office says India attempted to politicise the process
Pakistan on Saturday expressed the hope that the broader Financial Action Task Force (FATF) membership would take cognisance of India’s campaign against it and reject any attempt aimed at politicisation of the FATF process by India.
“We regard the statement issued by India regarding the FATF report as preposterous and unwarranted. If anything, this is yet another evidence of India’s relentless efforts to politicise the deliberations of FATF for its narrow, partisan objectives,” the Foreign Office said in a press statement.
It said Pakistan had consistently shared its concerns on this account with the FATF chair and members in the past and drawn their attention to high level political statements and media leaks from India to cast Pakistan in a negative light and plead for Pakistan’s downgrading.
