Armenian Parliament Votes to Join ICC

Armenian Parliament Votes to Join ICC


Armenia’s parliament has voted to join the International Criminal Court (ICC), much to the disdain of their Russian allies. The next step is to bring the resolution to the President, who will choose to ratify it, putting it into effect within 60 days upon ratification.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Armenian ambassador to discuss steps to prevent further deterioration of relations. A few months ago, the ICC issued a warrant for the arrest of Vladimir Putin, which would be expected if he were to visit Armenia on any diplomatic missions.

Vladimir Putin has said that he hopes to be able to amend the diplomatic issues that would potentially prevent him from visiting the country. Relations between the two countries have become increasingly frayed as the repeated clashes with Azerbaijan have received little support from Russia.
