WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The Biden administration will review sanctions imposed by the previous Trump administration on International Criminal Court (ICC) officials, a US State Department spokesperson said in a statement to Sputnik.

“Much as we disagree with the ICC’s actions relating to the Afghanistan and Israeli/Palestinian situations, the sanctions will be thoroughly reviewed as we determine our next steps,” the spokesperson said on Tuesday.
Last March, the ICC authorized the commencement of an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by parties to the conflict in Afghanistan, including an investigation of US personnel.
In December 2019, ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, who is also the key prosecutor in the Afghanistan investigation, said that there was enough evidence to open a probe into alleged Israeli war crimes in Palestine.
In response, on June 11, 2020, then-President Donald Trump issued an executive order authorizing sanctions against ICC officials.
