Iran's Supreme Leader advised members of parliament on Wednesday to pass their own legislation to combat money laundering, decreasing chances that laws based on requirements by the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) will be passed.

"Some of these treaties have useful parts, it's not a problem," Aytollah Ali Khamenei said in a speech to members of parliament, according to a transcript published on his official website. "The solution for this issue is that the parliament should make up its own law. For example, a law for fighting money laundering. There is no need for us to accept things that we don't know where they will end up."
