Iran Parliament's Commission Approves CFT Measure

Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission on Tuesday approved Iran's accession to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, clearing the biggest hurdle in the way of one of Iran's action plans set by the Financial Action Task Force. 
The powerful commission, however, laid six conditions for accepting the measures, including Iran's right to set its own definition of "terrorism". The commission had in the past opposed the bill, with some of its members staging a walkout this week to disrupt its passage. 
Mojtaba Zolnoor, a member of the commission, told Tasnim News Agency that the bill would be sent to the Majlis Presiding Board for a vote in Wednesday's plenary session.     
Ahead of the commission's vote on Tuesday, however, no unified voice could still be heard from MPs on the issue, which would largely determine Iran's status with FATF.
