Bulgarian Prime Minister Marin Raikov said his country plans to present the new evidence to the European Union in order to convince EU nations to add Hezbollah to their list of terrorist groups. Some EU governments have feared adding the group to the list because they believe such a move may increase tensions in the Middle East.

Bulgaria “will continue the investigation,” Raikov said from NATO headquarters in Brussels, Israel National News reported.

“We will continue to work on this very seriously, very actively. We will provide the needed evidence,” he said.
