Statement of the MFA on the Decision of the ICC on the Situation in Palestine dated 5 February 2021


The Czech Republic belongs among traditional supporters of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and fully respects its independent decision-making. Furthermore, the Czech Republic has always spoken in favor of the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which can be achieved only through direct negotiations between both parties. As expressed in its Observations submitted to the ICC on 12 March 2020, the Czech Republic believes that Palestine has not fulfilled yet all criteria of statehood under international law. In this context, the above-stated decision of the ICC does not change the current international law status of Palestine in any way.
