PRESS STATEMENT
MICHAEL R. POMPEO, SECRETARY OF STATE
FEBRUARY 12, 2020

 

The United States calls on Iran to fulfill its commitments to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and adhere to the FATF’s anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism standards that protect the international financial system from illicit finance. Iran should be treated like any other nation. Nearly every country in the world has adopted these standards.

Since Iran’s FATF action plan expired in 2018, Iran has failed to fulfill its commitments, including passing the UN Palermo and Terror Financing Conventions. It is past time for Iran to complete the action plan it agreed to in June 2016 or face the full re-imposition of countermeasures.
