Pompeo Applauds Colombia, Honduras and Guatemala for Hezbollah Terror Designation

(JNS) U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo praised three South American countries this week for designating Lebanon’s Hezbollah as a terrorist group, though criticized Venezuela for giving the group a haven.

“We applaud the announcements of Colombia, Honduras and Guatemala to designate #Iran-backed #Hizballah [sic] a terrorist organization. It and other transnational terrorist groups remain active in the region. The U.S. continues to rally international support to counter these threats,” tweeted Pompeo.

“Transnational terrorist groups, including #Iran-backed Hizballah, are still active in the Western Hemisphere. Today’s third Counterterrorism Ministerial is another important step in bolstering our collective efforts to fight these dangerous threats to freedom in the region,” he tweeted.

Referring to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Pompeo said on Monday, “We all know that the Iranian regime’s top terrorist proxy Hezbollah has found a home in Venezuela under Maduro. This is unacceptable,” reported Reuters.
