TEHRAN – The Guardian Council has held a meeting regarding the CFT, a legislation to combat financing of terrorism with three figures defending the ratification, council’s spokesman Abbasali Kadkhodaei said on Wednesday 

Kadkhodaei said the meeting was attended by Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Valiollah Seif, Al-Alam reported.

“Questions were raised by members of the council, which were answered, and then it was decided to use other experts’ comments in future meetings,” he added.

Earlier this month, Iranian lawmakers voted in favor of the CFT, passing it to the Guardian Council to vet the bill for compliance with the Constitution.
