The Arab League labelled the militant Shia Hezbollah movement a terrorist organisation at its meeting on Friday, Sky News Arabia reported on Friday.

"The Arab League foreign minister's committee decided on Friday to consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization," said a statement quoted by Sky News Arabia.

Lebanon and Iraq's delegations had expressed 'reservations' at the decision, the satellite TV news channel said.

On 2 March, the Gulf Cooperation Council also designated Hezbollah a terrorist group. The GCC comprises Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, The United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar.

"The Arab League foreign minister's committee decided on Friday to consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization," the statement said.

The United States, France, the Gulf Cooperation Council, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Israel have classified Hezbollah as a terrorist organisation.

The European Union, New Zealand and the United Kingdom have designated Hezbollah's military wing as a terrorist organization, while making a distinction with Hezbollah's political wing.

Russia considers Hezbollah a legitimate social and political organisation, while China maintains contacts with Hezbollah but remains neutral.
