BERLIN, July 21 (Reuters) – The European Union has long resisted U.S. calls to ban Hizbollah as a terrorist organisation and is not about to change that stance in the throes of a Middle East war, diplomats and analysts say.

With Israel pounding Lebanon in a 10-day bombardment sparked by Hizbollah’s abduction of two soldiers, the EU is focusing on diplomacy aimed at an immediate halt to hostilities.

Its foreign policy chief Javier Solana made clear in Jerusalem this week that listing Hizbollah as a terrorist group

— a step which would mean freezing its funds in Europe — was not on the current agenda.

“We have not analysed the list of terrorist activities or terrorist organisations in the last period of time and we have no intent in the foreseeable future to look into that again,” Solana said.
