European Union governments agreed on Monday to put the military wing of Lebanese militant group Hezbollah on the EU terror list, diplomats said, in a major reversal of policy driven by concerns over the group’s activities in Europe.
“Agreement (was) reached to list Hezbollah,” one EU diplomat told Reuters. Three other diplomats confirmed that.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague said earlier that ”the great majority” of the 28 EU member states supported the plans and hoped for the necessary unanimity during Monday’s meeting of the bloc’s foreign ministers.
