India never lobbied to get Pakistan in FATF blacklist: Government sources

Prime News, National (New Delhi), August 31:- India has reiterated its stand that terror and talks cannot go together. Top government sources told Zee News that dialogue is not possible when Pakistan is persisting to foment terrorism in the country. The sources also targeted Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan over an article written by him in a newspaper wherein he blamed India for the prevailing tension between New Delhi and Islamabad.

According to the sources, Imran Khan “quite conveniently” did not mention that suicide bombers from outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) carried out attacks in India.

They further dismissed allegations of India lobbying against Pakistan to get it placed on the ‘blacklist’ of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). The sources pointed out that Pakistan was already placed on the ‘grey list’ in 2018 “due to serious deficiencies in its anti-Money laundering and terrorism financing regimes”.
