Lithuania recognizes Hezbollah as a terrorist organization

People affiliated with Hezbollah have been banned from entering Lithuania for 10 years. The Lithuanian government announced on Thursday its recognition of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. “Having taken into consideration the information acquired by our institutions and partners, we may conclude that ‘Hezbollah’ uses terrorist means that pose a threat to the security of a significant number of countries, including Lithuania. We stand together with the United States of America, Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands, as well as other countries that had reached the same conclusion,” said Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius in a statement. “We appreciate the successful cooperation between the Lithuanian and Israeli national security agencies. We are thankful to these institutions for their significant work in helping ensure the safety of our citizens,” he continued. “It is important to note that we support peaceful people of Lebanon and their wish for their country to implement necessary reforms.”Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi spoke a few moments later with his Lithuanian counterpart, congratulating him on the Lithuanian government’s decision.
I spoke with Lithuanian FM @LinkeviciusL and thanked him for the important decision to designate #Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. I call on all European countries to make similar decisions. Hezbollah’s actions in Lebanon hold the entire Lebanese population hostage.
“Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that has controlled terror in large parts of Lebanon and turned them into Iranian-protected areas while taking Lebanese citizens, its economy and its political system hostage,” Ashkenazi said.
“This is a courageous and important decision to maintain regional stability,” he continued. “I call on all European countries to join the decision and understand that this is a dangerous and unstoppable terrorist organization that continues its attempts to carry out terrorist attacks around the world on Iran’s mission and funding.” He finished by thanking “the Foreign Ministry and the defense establishment who led the inter-agency activity to complete the move.”Hezbollah-affiliated people have been banned from entering Lithuania for 10 years. The decision made by the Migration Department of the Republic of Lithuania was based on the information on the listed peoples’ activities within Hezbollah that posed a threat to Lithuanian national security interests. Lithuania recently provided 50,000 euros of humanitarian assistance to Lebanon, following the massive explosion in Beirut on August 4.

Lithuania Designates Hezbollah as Terrorist Organization
Asharq Al-Awsat/Thursday, 13 August, 2020
Lithuania on Thursday designated Lebanon’s Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and issued a 10-year ban on all individuals related to the Iran-backed group from entering the Baltic nation’s territory. “After receiving valuable information from our foreign partners, we can assume that Hezbollah is functioning on the principles of terrorist organization,” Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said.
Linkevicius added, without elaborating, that some persons with the group also pose threat to Lithuania’s national security. Several countries, including the US and Germany, consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization. The European Union has only designated the group’s military wing as terrorist, in the aftermath of an attack on a tourist bus in Bulgaria in 2012.
