The reservations tabled before the FATF are those of America, the spokesperson added. He specified that Pakistan has already taken action against most of the reservations, including implementing its own national action plan (NAP).
The FO spokesperson further added that reported from the FATF and the International Cooperation Review Group (ICRG) are still awaited.
Earlier in the day, Indian media had misreported that a decision regarding including Pakistan in the grey-list had been made. A claim that now stands debunked. –Web Desk
