“FATF confirms its call to all its members and urges all jurisdictions to advise their financial institutions to take the risk arising from deficencies in Iran’s anti-money laundering and counter-financing of terrorism regimes into account for enhanced due diligence,” said Stuart Levey, undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, reading from a statement.
