Other jurisdictions with AML/CFT deficiencies are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Afghanistan, Lao PDR (aka Laos), Ethiopia, Iraq, Syria, Uganda, Vanuatu and Yemen, Ethiopia being newly added to this list. The remainder of the advisory focuses on the obligations for US financial firms relative to the DPRK and Iran.
