Commenting on the effect of FATF plenary in Paris on Pakistan activities in Kashmir, Naravane said, "China has also realised that they cannot back their all-weather friend (Pakistan) all the time. If the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) comes down heavily on them, they may have to do a rethink on their rhetoric and activities." Naravane added that there are 15-20 terrorist camps inside Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir where there are around 250-350 terrorists at any time and numbers may fluctuate.
