Cotton, Rosen Urge Bulgaria to Designate Hezbollah as Terrorist Entity

Written by Press Release

October 21, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Senator Jacky Rosen (D-Nevada) today sent a letter to the Bulgarian Ambassador to the United States Tihomir Stoytchev expressing appreciation for Bulgaria’s recent sentencing in absentia of Hezbollah operatives responsible for the 2012 bombing of a bus of Israeli tourists in Burgas, Bulgaria and encouraging Bulgaria to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist entity in its entirety.

The time is right for concrete actions from our European allies to hold Hezbollah accountable. The Burgas attacks convinced the European Union in 2013 to designate the so-called “military wing” of Hezbollah, but not its “political wing,” as a terrorist organization. Hezbollah’s political leadership does not itself recognize this division. In designating Hezbollah as a terrorist group, Bulgaria would reject this false distinction and set a bold example for the rest of the European Union to follow,” the Senators write.
