    Longer they remain the grey list, the harder it is to defend their actions and the risk of entering the black list increases.

    FATF retains Pakistan in ‘grey list’, delivers a sharp warning on blacklisting | HT | Feb 20 2020

    China will be stepping down as FATF chair this June. Germany will be the next FATF chair.

    It's better to keep them in grey list indefinitely, gives them an incentive to shape up.......

    The word 'farce' keeps coming up in youtube comments

    Why isn't Pakistan in the blacklist already ? FATF is a farce

    How long has Pakistan been in the grey list now ? FATF is a farce.

    If Pakistan complies with all the FATF conditions they can exit the grey list ? FATF is a farce

    Nobody understands the cost of being in the grey list to begin with.

    It increases the cost of insurance premiums and loans to Pakistan to the tune of $10 bn annually.

    For a country that is already reeling under a mountain of debt this is no easy thing.

    Keeping them in the grey list, in this case they have got an extension gives the Paks an incentive to clean up.

    They have enacted the laws required, only thing left is to implement them.

    Should they do so their ability to fund terror will be greatly constrained.

    An India win.

    As counter intuitive as it seems keeping the Paks in the grey list offers them an incentive to get out of it ie by complying.

    Black listing them gives them no incentive to comply, they could just say the world is against us and to hell with it.

    Iran & NK are in the black list for some time now. Has it made them change their ways ? no

    Should Pakistan remain as stubborn there may be no choice but to black list them as defending them will get harder for the three countries.

    Keeping them in the grey list is a constant reminder that the world hasn't yet forgotten their shenanigans. In any case they won't be allowed to go belly up, they friends and masters will make sure of that. But being in a grey list is big humiliation, the longer the better.......
