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.

The Banking 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.
