Pakistan's parliament has approved amendments to an anti-money laundering law to make it more effective in targeting the financing of extremists and bring it into line with global standards, officials said on Thursday.

The National Assembly, the lower chamber of the federal parliament, unanimously approved the amendments on Wednesday, two weeks after the Senate passed it, parliamentary officials said.

The amendments will boost the law to "deal effectively with terrorism financing", a senior finance ministry official told AFP, adding that they "reflect the government's firm resolve to strengthen its anti-money laundering regime".

The law now complies with international standards outlined by the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the official added.

FATF is an inter-governmental body established in 1989 to set standards and promote effective implementation of measures for combatting money laundering, financing for extremists, and other threats related to the integrity of the international financial system.

In June Pakistan's central bank issued regulations for banks and financial institutions to fight money launding and financing for extremists, and the finance ministry official said the latest amendments also bring the law further in line with those guidelines.
