He was meeting with Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud on these regional security issues when he made these statements. 'It is past time for Iran to live up to its commitment to play by the global rules to combat money laundering and terror financing. Iran must ratify the Palermo Convention and Terrorist Financing Convention now', he demanded.
