Pakistan has been placed on the 46th position in the list of 146 countries which have been given marks on a scale of 0 -- low risk to 10 -- high risk, by the Switzerland-based independent not-for-profit competence center.

The 10 countries with the highest AML risk are Iran, Afghanistan, Guinea-Bissau, Tajikistan, Laos, Mozambique, Mali, Uganda, Cambodia and Tanzania while the three lowest risk countries are Finland, followed by Lithuania and Estonia, the group said in a recent report published on its website.
