Israeli officials expressed satisfaction Thursday that the question of placing Hezbollah on the EU's terror blacklist was expected to be discussed at a two-day summit of the leaders of the 27 EU states that began Thursday evening in Brussels.
Though there was no expectation that any decision would be made at the meeting, one official said the very fact that it would be discussed by the European leaders was a step in the right direction.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said that the Bulgarian investigation that pointed to Hezbollah involvement in the 2012 Burgas attacked that killed six people, including five Israelis, would be assessed and discussed at the meeting.
