FATF Plan Ratification an Opportunity for Iran

The intergovernmental group that monitors anti-money laundering (AML) and combating terrorism financing (CFT) progress worldwide on Friday said Iran has been given another opportunity until October to complete its action plan by addressing nine deficiencies. But the FATF statement also suggested that this might be the last such deadline extended to Iran, so what happens in the next few months will be crucial for the future of Iran’s foreign ties, especially since the US is set to reimpose sanctions.
Two reformist experts in Iran have spoken on why Iran needs to fight off internal resistance and implement FATF requirements and take this very seriously.
