Pakistan / Islamabad News > Pakistan is already cracking down on the Haqqani network and does not need to impose extra measures following the group’s addition to the UN’s blacklist, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira said on Tuesday.
The UN Security Council’s Taliban sanctions committee on Monday added Haqqani network, accused of high-profile attacks in Afghanistan, to its sanctions list.
The action obliges all UN members to implement an asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo for the Haqqani network.
“The three elements of the ban — arms embargo, asset freeze and travel ban — are all already in place in Pakistan,” the Information Minister told Reuters.
“Which banned militant can openly travel in Pakistan? We have also checked on financing and other transfers. There is no problem,” Kaira said. (Reuters)
