One of the main issues they are expected to discuss is Hezbollah, an armed political group that the US considers “a terrorist organisation”.

 

The Lebanese group is currently in a joint offensive with the Syrian army to push fighters from the Syrian armed group Jabhat Fatah al-Sham out of a bordering region.
