U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday attributed the special characterisation of "world terrorist" to the "Revolutionaries Sect", according to Executive Order 13224 and following consultations she had with the U.S. ministries of Justice and Finance.

This action will contribute to the control of the flow of economic resources to the organisation, since through it all the assets subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. to which the "Revolutionaries Sect" has an interest will be bound and all transactions by Americans with this organisation will be forbidden.

"Today's classification of the Revolutionaries Sect underlines the interest of the American government in terrorist actions by terrorist groups in Europe. This action also proves the support of the American government for the effort of Greece to dismantle, eradicate and defeat this group," said ambassador Daniel Benjamin, who is the State Department's anti-terrorist struggle coordinator.
