PARIS, October 22 (RIA Novosti's Andrei Nizamutdinov) - "Cooperation between Russia and FATF is highly productive," President of the FATF, the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering, Jean-Louis Fort said.

"Russia has taken really titanic efforts to work out legislation and effective tools against money laundering and the financing of terrorism in no time," the official was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.

The President of FATF pointed to the establishment of the Eurasian Group (EAG) in the space of the CIS for combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism as a bright example of Russia's constructive stand.

Mr. Fort attended the constitutive session of the EAG in early October. According to him, his attendance was meant to stress FATF's interest in the establishment of the regional group.

The creation of the EAG will make measures against the financing of terrorism and money laundering more efficient and comprehensive, Mr. Fort remarked.

"Russia's move to set up the EAG and the country's readiness to adhere to stricter criteria prove its intention to follow the FATF's way," the FATF's President underlined.
