Diaa Rashwan, the chairman of the State Information Service (SIS) and the Egyptian Syndicate of Journalists, said Tuesday that Egypt is committed to its international obligations, as well as international law.

His remarks came in response to a detailed report by the Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force (MENAFATF), of which Egypt is a member.

The report evaluates all aspects of the implementation of international standards by Egypt to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and the proliferation of arms.

Egypt is firm on countering money laundering and terrorism financing, Rashwan said in statements to ON TV channel earlier today.

He added that the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Combating Unit (MLTFCU) was established in 2002 and has since been working in accordance with UN Security Council (UNSC) standards and in cooperation with a wide range of financial intelligence agencies.

This unit also works with bodies concerned inside Egypt to counter money laundering operations that intertwined with criminal cases, Rashwan noted.
