According to a report by Reuters, a senior Pakistani official claims that the United States has put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist with an anti-money laundering monitoring group. In recent months, Pakistan has scrambled to avoid being added to a list of countries deemed non-compliant with terrorist financing regulations by the Financial Action Task Force, a move which officials fear would hurt the country's economy. Pakistan’s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, told Reuters, "We are now working with the U.S., UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn. We are also quite hopeful that even if the U.S. did not withdraw the nomination that we will prevail and not be put on the watchlist.”
