In a rare break with its US allies, London has expressed its support for the International Criminal Court, saying the legal body should be allowed to work impartially and without fear of sanctions in investigating international crimes, APA reports citing Sputnik. 

On Thursday, President Trump issued an executive order authorizing economic sanctions and travel restrictions against the International Criminal Court workers involved in probing US troops and intelligence personnel for possible war crimes in Afghanistan without US consent.
