FATF takes the final decision over Pakistan grey list or blacklist

The FATF has directed Pakistan to take extra measures to eradicate terror financing after reviewing the latest steps taken by the country to curb money laundering.

In June 2018, FATF had put Pakistan in the grey list and gave it a time of 15 months to take appropriate measures to curb transaction of money to terror outfits. It had suggested a 27-action plan to Islamabad warning that if it failed, it will be blacklisted which prohibits financial aid to a country from international economic forums.
