The United States commends the Financial Action Task Force (FATF)’s February 21st call for all jurisdictions to swiftly enact effective countermeasures to protect the international financial system from the terrorist financing threats emanating from Iran. The regime must face consequences for its continued failure to abide by international norms, in particular its inaction in ratifying the Palermo and Terrorist Financing Conventions.

Since Iran’s FATF action plan expired in 2018, Iran has failed to fulfill its commitments to adhere to the FATF’s anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism standards, including ratifying the UN Palermo and Terrorist Financing Conventions.  The regime needs to adhere to the basic standards that virtually every other country in the world agrees to.  Iran must cease its reckless behavior and act like a normal nation if it wants its isolation to end.
