Pakistan will expedite steps to curb terror financing: IM

ISLAMABAD -UNS/AP- Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Saturday — a day after Pakistan avoided ending up on a terror watch list by a global task force — said that the government will expedite steps to curb terror financing and money laundering.

Pakistan’s performance in the war against terrorism was better than others’, but it still faced pressure from Washington, the minister said.

Iqbal said the motion put forward against Pakistan by the US was moved on “political basis” with the intention of bringing Pakistan under pressure.

Playing down speculations that the placement on the watch list could have severe economic repercussions for Pakistan, the minister said steps taken by the country against terror financing were not to please FATF or the US but they are “in the interest of our country”.
