Syria participates in Egmont Group for combating money laundering and terrorism funding in Hague

Damascus, SANA- Central Bank of Syria said that a delegation from the commission for combating money laundering and terrorism funding (CMLTF) participated in activities of  the 26th Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units meeting which was held in Hague from the first to the 4th of July.

The Central Bank said in a statement that the participation of commission for combating money laundering and terrorism funding in the meeting is an important event after more than nine years of suspension due to the relentless attempts made by many sides to make Syria absent from the international arena and prevent it from participation in all the meetings in regards with combating money laundering and terrorism funding in an attempt to put the name of Syria among countries that are not committed to international standards.

The Central Bank of Syria considered that Syria’s participation in the meeting is a step towards its returning to the international arena and achieving the objectives of the commission at the external level and developing its international presence in the upcoming stage.
