PA Envoy: We Won't Rush to International Criminal Court


The Palestinian Authority’s envoy to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, said on Tuesday that if the PA’s request to be admitted as non-member observer state is accepted, the PA will not necessarily rush to achieve recognition from the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

"I do not think we’ll hurry on the second day to register for everything related to the United Nations, including the International Criminal Court," said Mansour. He noted, however, that going to the International Court is still a possibility as long as Israel “does not move towards a resolution of the conflict.”
