Josep Borrell, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, urged “Israel” on Friday “not to intimidate” or "threaten" the judges of the International Criminal Court (ICC), whose Chief Prosecutor has asked for arrest warrants of the “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

"I ask everyone, starting with the Israeli government, but also certain European governments, not to intimidate the judges, not to threaten them," Borrell said during an interview with Spanish public television TVE, calling for "respect for the International Criminal Court".
