Britain re-establishing contact with Hezbollah
Thursday 05 March 2009
Britain's government says it's re-establishing contact with the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
Britain ceased contact with members of Hezbollah in 2005. The UK listed Hezbollah's military wing as a proscribed terrorist organization last year.
But Britain's Foreign Office said on today that it has reconsidered its position following political developments in Lebanon.
Britain's ambassador attended a meeting in January in Beirut alongside a Hezbollah lawmaker, the ministry says.
The Foreign Office says it is seeking to build relations with other legislators attached to the group.
