Islamabad Must Persecute Terror Groups Operating From Pakistan – United States

Published

on

Washington has welcomed Pakistan’s efforts to fight terrorism but reminded Islamabad that it must do more to prevent terror groups from operating within its borders. Pakistan has been placed in the grey-list of FATF (Financial Action Task Force) for money laundering and terror financing.

FATF’s Job Is To Support Pakistan To Counter Terrorism; Not Blacklist It – China

The statement was tweeted by Alice Wells, the acting assistant secretary of the US State Department’s Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs.

Wells said Washington welcomes Pakistan’s recent arrest of four Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leaders and wants them and LeT leader Hafiz Saeed to face prosecution for their “vicious attacks”.

The reminder from the US comes on the heels of Thursday’s arrest of four aides of Hafiz Saeed on terrorism financing charges. Saeed, arrested on the same charges, has been on judicial remand since July, a move previously welcomed by US President Donald Trump who wants Pakistan to do more to crack down on militancy.

India Should Be Removed From Terror Financing Watchdog’s Review Body FATF: Pakistan

The recent arrests come ahead of a meeting next week of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) which will review progress made by Pakistan on controlling terror financing and money laundering. Pakistan has been included in the grey-list of the FATF over charges of supporting terror activities via money laundering and terror financing.
