Josep Borrell: EU has to choose between supporting international rule of law institutions or Israel

The EU's foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said in response to the ICJ's order that the EU would need to choose between its support for international institutions or its support for Israel.

"What is going to be the answer to the ruling of the International Court of Justice that has been issued today, what is going to be our position?" he said at an event in Florence.

"We will have to choose between our support to international institutions of the rule of law or our support for Israel."
