FATF gives Pakistan a breather, escapes getting blacklisted

“We have neither concern nor objection if India diverts water of eastern rivers as the IWT allows it do so.”

India will use "all instruments at its command" to respond to Pakistan over its alleged role in a deadly bombing in Kashmir, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Friday, hours after Islamabad warned it would respond with "full force" if attacked. "While all these attacks kill, maim, and inspire fear, they can not occur without money and the means to move funds between terrorist supporters", he said. On January 27, 2017, Interior Ministry had placed JuD and FIF on its Watch List under section 11-D-(1) of Schedule II of Anti Terrorism Act, 1997.

Still, in his remarks on February 22, Trump said the United States has developed a "much better" relationship with Pakistan in the "last short period of time" and that he might set up meetings with Islamabad over the current situation. Total four organisations were on that list till Thursday.

FATF is an inter-governmental body that works to stop terror financing, among other objectives. It was established by the G7 in 1989 and is headquartered in Paris.

"The FATF notes with grave concern and condemns the violent terrorist attack last week that killed at least 40 Indian security forces in Pulwama in the State of Jammu and Kashmir", it said after the week-long FATF plenary held in Paris.

Reiterating his warning to choke Pakistan's water supply, Union minister Nitin Gadkari Friday said the neighbouring country won't get "even a single drop of water" from India if it continues to export terror.

The FATF will undertake the next review of Pakistan's progress in June 2019 which will be preceded by Face-to-Face meeting with the Joint Group in May 2019.

In the wake of the Pulwama attack, India had reportedly been pressuring the FATF to take strict action against Pakistan.

Terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack. In order to prevent its blacklisting in October this year, Pakistan had told the FATF, "Law enforcement agencies are identifying and investigating the widest range of terror funding activities and that terror funding investigations and prosecutions target designated persons and entities, and persons and entities acting on behalf of or at the direction of the designated persons or entities". India has accused its neighbour of not doing enough to rein in extremist insurgents operating within its borders while Pakistan denies any involvement.

"We will place our concerns against Pakistan in ICC forums", he said, before sharing copy of the mail sent to the ICC.
