Ahsan Iqbal said inclusion of Pakistan’s name in FATF grey list would not affect economy of country.

ISLAMABAD (APP) - Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday said that inclusion of Pakistan’s name in Financial Action Task Force (FATF), grey list would not affect economy of the country.

The United States was trying to pressurize Pakistan to complete its agenda in Afghanistan, he said. Pakistan had its own policy based on national interest, he added.

“Our aim was to wipe out terrorism from Pakistan,” he said.

As far as Pakistan’s economy was concerned after listing the name in FATF grey list, he said there would be no threat to our economy. In 2015, Pakistan’s name was included in white list, he added.
