Status: In October 2022, after four years, Pakistan was taken off the ‘grey list’ of the Financial Action Task Force, the watchdog of global terrorist financing. However, later the United Nations designated Pakistan-based Abdul Rehman Makki as a global terrorist on the joint proposal by India and the US. Also, during India’s presidency of the United Nations Security Council, the Council adopted a resolution demanding Afghan territory not to be used to attack any nation or to shelter terrorists. Additionally, the government have been holding Joint Working Groups on Counter Terrorism with various nations to push for the adoption of the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism (CCIT). CCIT is a draft proposed by India in 1996 that asks the signatory members to deny funds and safe havens to terrorist groups. On the outcome front, however, a forum based on the CCIT principles is still to be set up. i ii iii
