Germany backs blacklisting Hezbollah's military wing

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle decided Wednesday to support listing Hezbollah's military wing as a terrorist organization in the European Union, according to German diplomatic sources.
"In the light of discussions we have had with our partners following the terrorist attack in Burgas, Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle supports listing at least the military wing of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization in the EU," the officials said.
"The German position is based on an increasingly clearer picture of the facts and on the progress achieved by Cypriot authorities in analyzing terrorist activities," they continued. "Minister Westerwelle hopes that the necessary consultations within the EU can be concluded rapidly."
