We should not provide pretexts to the US and adversaries of the Islamic Republic at a time when the US has been defeated on political and legal fronts by the Islamic Republic and faces isolation

A senior member of Expediency Council, a body that settles disputes between the Majlis and the vetting body Guardians Council, said EC members have not rejected the government bill to amend the country's Anti-Money Laundering Law.
The bill is part of the Action Plan set forth by the inter-governmental Financial Action Task Force, which Iran intends to implement before FATF decides on the country's status in its upcoming meeting in October. 
Majid Ansari, who is a member of EC's High Supervisory Commission, said the recent announcement by the council that the AML bill is against the country's major policies was not a rejection of the bill since some of those issues can be resolved with "an extra explanation" of the parliament. 
According to Ansari, a repudiation or acceptance of a bill by EC only happens when the council's members take sides in a dispute between the Guardians Council and the Majlis.
