PARIS, Feb 21 — The global dirty money watchdog placed Iran on its blacklist today after it failed to comply with international anti-terrorism financing norms, a move that will deepen the country’s isolation from financial markets. The decision came after more than three years of warnings from the Paris-based Financial Action Taskforce (FATF) urging the Islamic Republic to either enact terrorist financing conventions or see its reprieve from the blacklist lifted and some counter-measures imposed.

“The consequence of (Iran’s) inaction is higher costs of borrowing and isolation from the financial system,” a Western diplomat told Reuters.Foreign businesses say Iran’s compliance with FATF rules is essential if it wants to attract investors, especially since the United States reimposed sanctions on Tehran in 2018 after quitting a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and other big powers.

“The United States was pushing for the toughest position (by FATF), while other countries like China and Russia preferred something more flexible,” said a European official. “The Europeans were looking for something in between.”Iran’s action plan to meet with the FATF requirements, implemented in 2016, expired in January 2018.
