Expresses appreciation to the European Union (EU) for the progress made in countering Hizballah since the EU designated Hizballah's military wing as a terrorist organization.

Supports cooperation between the United States and the EU in thwarting Hizballah's criminal and terrorist activities.

Urges the EU to designate Hizballah in its entirety as a terrorist organization and increase pressure on the group, including through:

  • issuing arrest warrants against Hizballah members and active supporters,
  • freezing Hizballah's assets in Europe, and
  • prohibiting fund raising activities in support of Hizballah.
