BERLIN – A discussion is under way within the EU about possibly listing
Hezbollah as a terrorist group, Austria’s Foreign Ministry informed The
Jerusalem Post on Saturday.
Austria appears to be the first EU country to
acknowledge that that the 27- member body has begun a process to designate the
Lebanese Shi’ite group as a terrorist organization.
Schallenberg, a seasoned Austrian diplomat, couched the process with caveats. “A
possible listing of the entire Hezbollah within the EU as a terror organization
must consider various political aspects,” he wrote.
