Honest Reporting: The European Union, especially Sweden’s foreign minister, faces a new credibility problem over plans to label products from West Bank settlements. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the EU would appeal a European Court of Justice ruling that annulled a 2012 EU-Morocco trade deal.

The court ruled that the agreement shouldn’t apply to Western Sahara, a disputed, mineral-rich territory that has been controlled by Morocco since 1976. More background at the Wall St. Journal (via Google News). The legal action was taken by the Algerian-backed Polisario Front.
