Armenia’s plans to joint Int’l Criminal Court “absolutely unacceptable”, says Russia

Russia on Tuesday criticized Armenia for its plans to join the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) following the recent arrest warrants that the ICC issued for President Vladimir Putin and the country’s ombudswoman for children’s rights, writes aa.com.tr.

Calling Yerevan’s intentions “absolutely unacceptable”, the Foreign Ministry told TASS news agency that the Armenian side was warned “about the extremely negative” consequences such a move could have on bilateral relations.

Armenia’s Constitutional Court published a decision on Friday that the Rome Statute complied with the country’s basic law. The decision was final and took effect with its publication.
