U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo welcomed Serbia’s decision to “designate Hizbollah as a terrorist organisation in its entirety” and called it a “significant step limiting this Iranian backed terrorist group’s ability to operate in Europe… there is no doubt that the dominoes are falling on Hizbollah’s European operations, where it has continue to plot terrorist attacks, procure military technology and raise much needed funding”. Pompeo further urged “the European Union and European nations to designate or ban Hizbollah in its entirety, and recognise the reality that it is a terrorist organisation root and branch with no distinction between its so-called ‘military’ and ‘political’ wings”.
