US wants Pakistan on terror-financing watchlist

The US and its European allies have put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist with an anti-money laundering monitoring group.

According to reports, US has accused Islamabad of not complying with the UN Security Council resolutions relating to terror groups including al-Qaeda and its affiliates.

Unveiling his new South Asia policy in August last year, US President Donald Trump had warned of tougher measures against Pakistan if it failed to cooperate with the US in the fight against terror.

This comes just days after Pakistan passed an ordinance banning terror groups listed by the UN, and declared Hafiz Saeed as a terrorist.
