US lauds EU decision to slap terror tag on Hezbollah militant arm

The White House has applauded the European Union`s decision to blacklist Lebanon`s military group Hezbollah for being a threat to global stability.

Washington: The White House has applauded the European Union`s (EU) decision to blacklist Lebanon`s military group Hezbollah for being a threat to global stability.

The Fox News reports that EU`s decision has allowed government officials to crack down on the group`s fundraising, logistics and terror plots in Europe.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the move sends a clear message that there are consequences for the Lebanese group`s terrorist activities.

Carney also criticised Hezbollah for supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad responsible for the ongoing two-and-a-half year civil conflict in the country that has killed nearly 93,000 people.
