FO rejects report that S. Arabia voted against Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday categorically rejected as false and baseless a report circulating in the media claiming that Saudi Arabia had voted against Pakistan at a meeting of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

“Pakistan and Saudi Arabia enjoy strong fraternal ties and the two countries have always cooperated with each other on all matters of bilateral, regional and international importance,” FO spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said.

“Pakistan greatly values its relations with the brotherly Saudi Arabia and firmly rejects such malicious propaganda,” he added.

The FATF, the global money laundering and terrorist financing watchdog, would on Friday (today) decide whether or not Pakistan would remain on its list of ‘jurisdictions under increased monitoring’, which is more commonly known as the ‘grey list’.
