Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif Hitti summoned German Ambassador to Beirut after Germany’s decision to blacklist Hezbollah.

Ambassador Georg Birgelen told minister Hitti that the decision has been taken since a while, adding that it doesn’t designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization but bans its activities on German soil.

For his part, Hitti stressed that Hezbollah is a main component in the country and represents a big group of the Lebanese people, adding that it is part of the Lebanese Parliament.

Berlin on Thursday designated Hezbollah as a “terrorist organization,” banned all its activities in the European country and ordered raids on sites police claimed were linked to the movement.
