THE UNITED NATIONS, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and China on Thursday have blocked the adoption in the UN Security Council of a resolution stipulating that the situation in Syria will be submitted for consideration to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.
Whereas 13 Security Council member countries voted for the move, the delegations of Russia and China used their veto right.
The resolution has not been adopted as two permanent Council members voted against it, UN Security Council President for May, Permanent Representative of South Korea Oh Joon announced.
Syria has not ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, so any investigations regarding Syria should be sanctioned by the Security Council. This was what UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay in particular insisted on.
