Assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League Hossam Zaki said in a June 29, 2024 interview with AlQahera News TV (Egypt) that the Arab League no longer considers Hizbullah a terrorist organization. He added that the Arab League Does Not Keep a list of terrorist entities.

Hossam Zaki: "In the resolutions of the countries of the Arab League, Hizbullah has, indeed, been labeled 'terrorist.' This was part of the resolutions, and, therefore, the contacts with [Hizbullah] were severed. It was based on these resolutions.

"When the countries that are members of the Arab League agreed that this phrasing should not be used, that was it, it gave us the opportunity to maintain contact, since this label no longer exists. In the Arab League, we do not have a list of terrorist organizations or whatever. We have no such thing to begin with. We do not make any efforts to label certain entities as such."
