Russia would veto referral of Syria to criminal court - Interfax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will veto a draft U.N. resolution to refer the Syria war to the International Criminal Court if it comes to a vote in the Security Council, the Interfax news agency cited Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov as saying on Tuesday.

France circulated a draft resolution to U.N. Security Council members on May 12 that seeks to refer the three-year-old civil war to the ICC for possible prosecution of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
