The élites come to believe their narrative – forgetting that it was conceived as an illusion created to capture the imagination within their society.
Borrell’s arrogance in presuming to come to Moscow to lecture on human rights is the real offense. Sergei Lavrov was eminently correct to give this attempt at humiliation short shrift.
In reality, the position that the EU has taken, is to very much side with Haftar and with his LNA army which is attempting to overthrow the weak and somewhat illegitimate regime holding out in Tripoli.
The EU is Israel’s biggest trading partner and Borell himself underlined that it was important for Europe to have “the best relationship with Israel” as a new coalition government between Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz finally begins to take shape in the Middle Eastern state.
