NEW YORK – In an exchange with US Senator Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) on drying up
Iranian funds for the financing of its alleged nuclear weapons program, Treasury
Under Secretary David Cohen said the US government is diligently working to
convince the EU to label Hezbollah a terrorist group.
Committee hearing took place on Thursday and revealed growing efforts by Cohen
and the powerful treasury department for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence
that he heads, to push the Europeans to take action against Hezbollah for the
terror attack on Israeli and Bulgarians in July.
