Tehran: Iran on Friday condemned the German government's decision to ban Lebanon's Hezbollah movement from operating in the country, designating it as a terrorist organization.

"Certain countries in Europe are apparently adopting their stances without considering the realities in the West Asia region," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in a statement.

The German government's blacklisting of Hezbollah "only serves the objectives of Israel and the US", said Mousavi.

Besides, the decision "disrespects" the Lebanese government and nation, as Hezbollah is a "legitimate and official part of the country's government and Parliament", he added.

On Thursday, Germany blacklisted the Hezbollah and banned all activities of the group in the country. (IANS)
