countries that are kept under watch in a move to counter international terror financing. The move will make Pakistan to

India by different terror groups supported by Pakistan has made the international community to request FATF to put
the country again in the list.
The decision to put paksistan again in the list was taken in plenary session of FATF in February for which Pakistan
opened diplomatic channels to prevent the move, even presented a 26-point plan of action to the FATF but could not prevent
it and hence was put back in the list on 29 June.
