Paraguayan President Mario Abdo Benítez has designated Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday welcomed Paraguay’s decision:
“We commend Paraguay for designating Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and Hamas as terrorist organizations. This important step will help cut off the ability of these groups to plot terrorist attacks and to raise money around the world, including in the Western Hemisphere...
The world is increasingly recognizing Hezbollah for what it is – not a defender of Lebanon as it purports to be, but a terrorist organization dedicated to advancing Iran’s malicious agenda. Like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, Hezbollah has a global reach, with operations and plots disrupted in recent years in the Americas, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Asia,” said Pompeo.
U.S. Department of State Release the following statement:
"The United States commends Paraguay for designating Hizballah, al-Qa’ida, ISIS, and Hamas as terrorist organizations. Hizballah is not a defender of Lebanon, it's a terrorist organization dedicated to advancing #Iran’s malicious agenda and destabilizing the region."
