Trending Now

Moscow has described Washington's reaction to the International Criminal Court's (ICC) potential arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as "curious," while the Kremlin continues to monitor the developments closely, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS.

"We are not a party to the ICC, so we do not fall under the jurisdiction of this court," Peskov noted.

"The situation is more than curious in terms of the US reaction and readiness to use sanction methods even with regard to the ICC. Quite curious. So, on the one hand, we [Russia] do not support it, but on the other hand, of course, we are monitoring the situation," he added.

US House of Representatives Speaker Mike Johnson stated earlier that American lawmakers are contemplating introducing sanctions against the ICC if it issues an arrest warrant for Netanyahu.
