In a press release, the foreign ministry said the seminar was held to ensure the organisations understood their obligations as reporting entities, and the need to cooperate with the government and the international community by applying measures to prevent the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destructions.

“Our speakers presented the precise details of the laws, sub-decrees, implementation procedures and legal documents which the government put into practice after the adoption of the PF Law in 2020,” said the release.
