India calls Pakistan 'safe havens for terror entities' ahead of FATF test

As global anti-terror watchdog FATF reviews Pakistan's performance in curbing terror-financing, India on Thursday said the neighbouring country continues to provide safe havens to terror entities as well as UN-designated terrorists. Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Anurag Srivastava said Pakistan has addressed only 21 out of 27 "action items" prescribed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to contain terror financing. The FATF began its three-day virtual plenary meeting on Wednesday in which it is reviewing Pakistan's performance in implementation of the action plan recommended by it to choke channels of funding to the terror groups operating from the country. "As is well known, Pakistan continues to provide safe havens to terrorist entities and individuals and has also not yet taken any action against several terrorist entities and individuals including those proscribed by the UNSC such as Masood Azhar, Dawood Ibrahim, Zakir-ur-Rahman Lakhvi etc," Srivastava added. Watch the full video for more details.

Ministry of External Affairs MoS V Muraleedharan lambasted on Rahul Gandhi for meeting journalist's Siddique Kappan family, who was arrested at the toll plaza in Uttar Pradesh, on his way to Hathras. He said that Congress leader is following the footstep of his party, which according to him "divides the country on the basis of demand raised by Muhammad Ali Jinnah". "Rahul Gandhi is following the same footsteps, by aligning with those forces, who are out to break the country into pieces. Out to create division in the society."He also said that the "assurance given by Gandhi to family of the PFI journalist is highly objectionable and deplorable."
