Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This isn't about what flies in court. There are no genuine international courts, excepting perhaps the WTO arbitration process. I'd like for a body of international jurisprudence to come into being, but until and unless it does... well, you work with the international law you have, not the one you'd like.

So it's about political justifications for intervention by the European Union's foreign service in the internal affairs of another country. That is not, and never has been, about laws. So a political justification is both necessary and sufficient - a legal justification is neither.
