ICC does not help human rights: China

Beijing, Feb 17: Submitting human rights issues to International Criminal Courts (ICC) does not improve the situation of the country which has approached it, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said Monday.

Spokeswoman Hua Chunying said this in a press briefing while responding to a question that the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea will publicise its report and that may bring North Korean officials to the ICC, reported Xinhua.

“China has always advocated resolving human rights differences through constructive dialogue and cooperation based on equality and mutual respect,” Hua said.
