According to sources, the FATF meeting will discuss steps taken by Pakistan till April 2019 and a decision will be taken whether to exclude Pakistan from the grey list, reported the news channel.

The news channel said during the session measures taken by Pakistan to prevent terrorist financing will also be reviewed.
