If ‘the EU is not able to reach unanimous decision – each to their own,’ Spain’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell said at a conference of European Union leaders in Austria Tuesday. He added the last option of individual recognition of Palestine is ‘on the table.’ Borrell also said that he will launch an ‘intensive’ consultation process with his counterparts to set a timetable for achieving a common position on the subject.”
