Trump Urges U.S. Allies to Recognize Hezbollah as Terrorist Group

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday urged Washington’s allies to recognize Hezbollah as a terrorist group, as part of his repeated calls to rein in Iran.

“They [the U.S. allies] should recognize Hezbollah as a whole a terrorist organization,” Trump said in a statement that deals with further pressure on Iran.

"I also call on all our allies to take stronger steps with us to confront Iran’s other malign activities. Among other actions, our allies should cut off funding to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, its militant proxies, and anyone else who contributes to Iran’s support for terrorism," he added.

"They should join us in constraining Iran’s missile development and stopping its proliferation of missiles, especially to Yemen. They should join us in countering Iran’s cyber threats. [...]. And they should not do business with groups that enrich Iran’s dictatorship or fund the Revolutionary Guard and its terrorist proxies."
