It now confirmed that the Iranian led Hezbollah Group is now being designated as a terrorist group. Just before the United States official visit, the Argentinean government is planning to designate the Lebanese based Hezbollah group as a terror outfit. This comes after its role in the terror attacks against the Israeli Embassy and AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.
They are looking at a fast track voting in the Parliament towards this and hope that this comes through before the 25th Anniversary to the brutal bombing that happened in 1994. This July 18 will mark the 25th anniversary of the bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association in the country’s capital. The attack left 85 people killed and 300 injured.
The report added that on that day Macri would pay tribute to the victims with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is scheduled to visit the country next week.
It is also confirmed that The United States and Argentina have already held a workshop on countering Hezbollah’s terrorist activities in the western hemisphere in Buenos Aires in Jun, this year.
Mauricio Macri, the current president of Argentina has held the office since 2015, and this move, it seems to be connected to the US official’s visit. Media is calling it a critical turn in Argentina’s foreign politics. The designation of Hezbollah as a terror group would imply enforcing political and financial restrictions on its members in the country.
