Pakistan is on FATF grey list due to PM Modi government: EAM | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: External affairs minister S Jaishankar on Sunday said Pakistan had been put in global terror-financing watchdog FATF’s grey list because of the efforts made by the Modi government. FATF continues to keep Pakistan in its ‘Increased Monitoring List’ because of the latter’s failure to do enough against UN-designated terrorists.
He was also quoted as saying that India had given China an “appropriate reply” for “infringing” on LAC. Addressing a training programme for BJP leaders, he said LeT and JeM terrorists were sanctioned by the UN because of India’s efforts.
“FATF keeps a check on funding for terrorism and deals with black money supporting terrorism. Due to us, Pakistan is under the lens of FATF and it was kept in the grey list. We’ve been successful in pressuring Pakistan and the fact that Pakistan’s behaviour has changed is because of pressure put by India through various measures,” Jaishankar was quoted as saying by ANI.
“The PM’s personal efforts made on forums like G20 or G7 made nations realise that terrorism is everyone’s problem. India ensured that the world should be concerned about terrorism,” he said. He also said the issue of black money was taken up globally because of India
