Paris, 20 June 2008
The FATF reaffirmed its public statement of 28 February 2008 regarding the anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism risks posed by Uzbekistan, Iran, Pakistan, Turkmenistan and São Tomé and Principe, and the northern part of Cyprus.
The FATF welcomed the actions taken by its members to advise their financial institutions of these risks.
The FATF was encouraged by steps taken by some jurisdictions but was concerned about the lack of progress by, in particular, Uzbekistan and Iran.
The FATF will continue to assess the situation and take further actions in October, as necessary, to protect the international financial system.
