Borrell ignored warnings on EU mission to Venezuela

EU foreign-affairs chief Josep Borrell ignored the recommendation of his personal workers to agree an election-monitoring mission in Venezuela subsequent month. The EU mission would “have an adverse impact on the reputation and credibility of EU [observers] and indirectly legitimise Venezuela’s electoral process,” his workers mentioned in a report in July seen by the Monetary Occasions. Borrell’s spokesman mentioned the EU mission might be cancelled if monitoring circumstances worsened.
