Hezbollah, Amal praise effort against EU blacklist
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Both Amal and Hezbollah thanked top politicians Friday for asking the European Union to not blacklist the resistance party.

Hezbollah MP Mohammad Raad telephoned President Michel Sleiman, caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati and caretaker Foreign Minister Mansour to thank them for asking the EU to refrain from blacklisting the resistance group, Hezbollah’s office said.

Speaker Nabih Berri also contacted the president and thanked him for his effort.

The NNA reported Friday that Mansour had sent letters to his counterparts in 28 EU countries asking “that Hezbollah not be placed on the list of terrorist organizations, given that the party is a principal component of Lebanese political life and has representatives in Parliament and government.”
