Terror groups operating from Pak; ‘non-reversible’ action needed: UK

NEW DELHI: Pakistan needs to do more and take “non-reversible” action against terrorism to avoid being blacklisted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the UK said on Thursday, asserting that terror groups operating within that country pose a threat to the stability of South Asia.

Gareth Bayley, the UK’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said “all options are on the table” for the next stage in FATF on Pakistan on the basis of evidence submitted by it.

“It is absolutely clear that terrorist groups are operating from within Pakistan. They pose a serious challenge to the Government of Pakistan and to South Asia’s regional stability. Absolutely clear,” Bayley said at a session of the Raisina Dailogue here. (AGENCIES)
