US ambassador urges EU to classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization
Grenell tells ‘Post’ “I am hopeful that there will be a draft European Parliament resolution calling for the ban of Hezbollah.”
The US government’s most important European ambassador on Wednesday urged the EU to designate the entire Hezbollah movement a terrorist entity.
Writing an opinion article for Politico, US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell said “The European Union should follow the German parliament’s lead and recognize Hezbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organization.”
The ambassador told The Jerusalem Post that “I am hopeful that there will be a draft European Parliament resolution calling for the ban of Hezbollah. The German government’s action on the issue has been a huge step forward in Europe.”
The US embassy tweeted on Wednesday about Grenell’s meeting with members of the European parliament. “Today we met with David McAllister and several other German members of the @Europarl_EN [European Parliament] to strategize how Europe can take action to designate Hizballah a terrorist organization.”
