The actions of the Modi government had clearly indicated that India will take further actions to totally corner Pakistan. After the Balakot air strike, India submitted evidence to prove that serious damage was inflicted on the terror camps in Pakistan.
Now the Pakistani foreign minister Qureshi fears that India could cause $10 billion loss annually due to its diplomatic skills. Yes, Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said at a press conference in Lahore on 1st April that “The Foreign Office is calculating the annual loss if Pakistan is pushed in the black-list by the FATF as India is lobbying for this”.
Qureshi stated that if India succeeds, then Pakistan could suffer an annual loss of $10 billion annually. Note that Pakistan was placed on the grey list of countries by the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in June last year. A report by Hindustan Times stated “The FATF has asked Pakistan to reassess the operation of banned terrorist outfits in the country. Ahead of the team’s visit, Pakistan wrote to FATF president Marshall Billingslea to appoint other member as co-chair of the Asia-Pacific’s Joint Group, in place of India, to ensure that the FATF review process is fair, unbiased and objective”.
When a delegation of the Asia-Pacific Group (APG) on money laundering, a regional affiliate of the FATF, had visited Pakistan, the terror nation did not demonstrate a proper understanding of the risks posed by the Islamic State group, Al-Qaeda, Jamaat-ud-Dawah, Falah-i-Insania, Lashkar-e-Taiba, JeM, Haqqani Network and persons affiliated with the Taliban.
The Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi was in news since past few weeks. After the Balakot Air Strike, while speaking on JeM chief, he had said that “He (Masood Azhar) is in Pakistan, according to my information. He is very unwell. He is unwell to the extent that he cannot leave his house because he is really unwell. That’s the information I have”.
