China, which hosted the key meeting of the international terror financing watchdog, said on Thursday that Pakistan has made 'visible progress' to strengthen its counter-terrorism financing system.
Pakistan has been given January 8, 2020 deadline to respond to the 150 questions, the official said on Saturday.
The implementation of the FATF recommendations, besides taking action against terrorist networks, would help the US revise its travel advisory against Pakistan.
The two sides undertook to hold the next political dialogue in Islamabad that would contribute towards the EU-Pakistan strategic dialogue at high representative and foreign minister-level.
Qureshi's remarks came after the Paris-based FATF put Pakistan on notice on Friday, warning that it will be blacklisted if it does not control terror funding by February.
In an indirect reference to Pakistan, she said that the IMF's revocation may not be as direct as FATF.
Pakistani officials held sideline meetings with various delegations and briefed them about the progress on the FATF action plan.
The FATF noted that Pakistan addressed only five out of the 27 tasks given to it in controlling funding to terror groups like the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad.
While India pressed FATF to put Pakistan on its black list, the global body directed Islamabad to take measures for complete elimination of terror financing and money laundering.
According to a media report, China, Turkey and Malaysia appreciated the steps taken by Pakistan.
FATF's Asia-Pacific unit had said that Pakistan faces high risks of money laundering and terror financing and has complied with just one the 40 recommendations set by it.
Terrorism is a low-cost sustainable option which may damage enemies to a great extent, Doval said in a reference to Pakistan.
The European Foundation for South Asian Studies (EFSAS) has said that there is little doubt that Pakistan is not really serious about its adherence to the FATF's requirements.
Pakistan was placed on the grey list in June last year and given a plan of action to complete it by October 2019 or face the risk of being placed on the blacklist with Iran and North Korea.
The insiders revealed that Pakistan’s traditional friend China withdrew its objections in putting Islamabad on the grey list.
