China hopes ICC will be ‘objective’ after warrants sought for Israel, Hamas leaders

China says it hopes the International Criminal Court will uphold an “objective” position after its prosecutor requested arrest warrants for leaders from Israel, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Hamas.

“It is hoped that the ICC will uphold its objective and impartial position and exercise its powers in accordance with the law,” foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin says, while calling for an end to the “collective punishment of the Palestinian people.”
