BEIRUT: European Union Ambassador to Lebanon Angelina Eichhorst discussed Thursday with Hezbollah official Ammar Musawi the ongoing efforts to form a new government in Lebanon and the presidential election.

According to a statement by Hezbollah’s press office, Eichhorst discussed with Musawi, the head of the party’s International Relations Department, efforts to form a consensus Cabinet that can be supported by all Lebanese parties and the presidential election.

During the meeting, Eichhorst condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Lebanon and offered condolences to the victims of the recent bombing in Beirut's southern suburbs, the statement said.

A suicide bomber detonated a vehicle containing 20 kilograms of explosives last week in Haret Hreik, a neighborhood where Hezbollah enjoys broad support, killing five people.

The EU maintained its ties with Hezbollah despite taking a decision last year to blacklist the party’s military wing, a move driven by concerns over the group’s role in a bus bombing in Bulgaria and its involvement in the Syrian war.

The EU has said it differentiates between Hezbollah’s political and military branches.
