MOSCOW, January 15 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow believes that the idea of handing over the Syrian dossier to the International Criminal Court is ill-timed and counter-productive, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“We believe that this idea is not properly timed and counter-productive for tackling the priority task at this moment – early termination of bloodshed in Syria,” the commentary said.
“We are certain that speculations over the theme of international criminal prosecution and search for culprits would merely contribute to the rival parties taking firmer irreconcilable positions and complicate the search for ways of a political and diplomatic settlement of the Syrian conflict,” the Foreign Ministry said.
