"Israel became a member in the very exclusive club of the FATF, the organization that is responsible to prevent money laundering and terror financing. There are 35 countries who are members of this organization, Israel will be the thirty-sixth country and I think it's the first time that a country is getting to this organization on the first chance. It's putting Israel in one line with the United States and UK regarding and preventing money laundering and financing terror."

And in general the organization, the FATF, said that Israel is one of the most efficient countries regarding preventing money laundering and financing terror."
