Remarks by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton following the Foreign Affairs Council
EU News 347/2013
Brussels, 22 July 2013
Due to concerns over the role of Hezbollah, we have agreed to designate its Military Wing on the list of terrorist organisations. That does not prevent the continuation of dialogue with all political parties in Lebanon. We also agreed that the delivery of legitimate financial transfers to Lebanon and delivery of assistance from the European Union and its Member States will not be affected. Our position will be reviewed on a 6 monthly basis, which is the normal timeframe for review in circumstances such as this.
