Shamkhani: Supreme Leader should put seal of approval on implementation of FATF

Tehran, Sept 14, IRNA – Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said on Wednesday that the SNSC has reached consensus to implement the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) but this should be approved by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

The SNSC walks in line with the country’s national interests, Shamkhani said.

Speaking to reporters, he said, ‘We have reached a positive sum up in this regard and this will be implemented following confirmation of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution.’

On the presence of US in the Persian Gulf waters, he said the US tries to make media hype in the region.

That’s for many years that the US has called for having interaction with Iran in the Persian Gulf but the fact is they seek an ineffective effort named relationship, he said.

The US presence in the Persian Gulf lacks legal and international support and is against will of nations in the region, he concluded.
