Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said on Tuesday that a US-led motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist financing watchlist has been suspended for three months.
Final Action Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is expected to be announced on Thursday (22/2).
Khawaja Asif, in an official visit to Russia, said on Twitter on Tuesday that "Pakistani efforts were successful" and the country was given a three-month suspension over the US-led motion.
Asif also mentioned that the financial regulatory body has instructed the Asia Pacific Group (APG) , one of the FATF entities, to consider "another June report" on the matter.
The South Asian nation has been trying hard not to be included in the list FATF countries that have failed to comply with FATF guidelines and regulations and take adequate measures to combat terror financing and money laundering. [as/al]
