"Time has come to tell the truth and say what is happening. Agreement has been reached, and that wing is considered terrorist with all subsequent consequences," the minister told BNS by phone from Brussels.
With this decision, EU ministers "speak out very clearly against unacceptable military activities Hezbollah is engaged in," Linkevičius noted.
Specific sanctions should be discussed later, the minister said.
"Humanitarian aid around a million of refugees need so much should be provided as it has been so far. These things should be separated," he said.
Hezbollah has close ties with Iran, Israel's enemy, and its recent intervention in Syria caused concern for the West that support rebels who want to topple Syrian President Bashar al Assad.
All 28 EU ministers backed the decision to put the military wing of Hezbollah on the terrorist organization list.
