Iran not member of FATF or affiliated regional groups: Spox

Tehran, Feb 14, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Wednesday that Iran is not a member of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and its regional ancillaries and that’s for the same reason that it has never been invited to attend its periodical official sessions.

He made the remarks in reaction to some news about not inviting Iran to FATF meeting in Paris.

As to the presence of the Iranian delegation in previous meetings of the institute, he said that Iranian expert delegation's participation in the unofficial expert meetings of the entity’s review group, usually held one month earlier, was meant for technical examination of Iran’s report on progress of its action plan. But the session was not held due to lack of technical agenda last month.
