LAHORE: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Islamabad has shared ‘concrete proofs’ of India’s terror financing in Pakistan and demanded that the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) bring India in the dock and question its wrongdoings.

“The FATF member countries’ action [after witnessing India’s terror financing proofs] will determine whether it’s a technical or a political forum,” Mr Qureshi asserted while speaking to a private news channel soon after National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and IG Punjab Inam Ghani’s press conference in Islamabad.

The foreign minister said he himself and Mr Yusuf had already expressed concerns at a recent presser that India was supporting terrorism in Pakistan and proofs explicitly explained that it (India) was providing weapons, finances as well as training to terrorists in Pakistan.

He said India was also using Afghanistan’s land against Pakistan. “The Johar Town, Lahore, bomb blast proved our concerns,” he said.

Mr Qureshi claimed that Pakistan’s intelligence agencies had exposed India and now solid proofs had been shared with the diplomatic corps and P5 countries’ ambassadors in Pakistan as well as with the United Nations and the media.

“Isn’t it a responsibility of the FATF to bring India in the dock and ask why it is backing terrorism in Pakistan,” Mr Qureshi asked.
