Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced on Monday that the Palestinians would become full members of the International Criminal Court as of April 1.

 

Abbas made the announcement during a joint press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara.

 

Abbas said that the Palestinians would soon go back to the UN Security Council to seek a resolution establishing a timeline for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines.

 

“We’ll go back to the Security Council after consulting with our brothers and friends,” Abbas said.

 

Last month, the Palestinians failed in securing a majority of votes in favor of the proposed resolution.
