Tehran hosts conference on combating money laundering, financing terrorism

The National Conference on Combating Money Laundering and Financing Terrorism was held in Tehran on Tuesday.
Addressing the conference, Iran’s minister of economic affairs and finance said that Iran’s position in interaction with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is active, not passive, IRNA reported.
Ehsan Khandouzi added that his ministry expects the FATF to adopt a technical rather than political approach in its evaluation.
The minister pointed to the situation of Iran’s membership at the FATF and added, “According to the financial and judicial reports, salient measures have been taken in the country in the field of fighting against money laundering and financing terrorism which is unprecedented.”
The economic experience of Iran in the determination (and blocking) of the path of financing money laundering and terrorism is an experience that has higher standards compared to many countries of the world which have adopted normal positions in the assessment of the FATF situation, the economy minister stated.
