War C(brn)rimes

The Netherlands was expected to press that the International Criminal Court expanded its definition of war crimes to include the use of CB weapons. The Netherlands was backing a Belgian measure to include chemical and biological weapons in War Crimes, as opposed to a Mexican proposal that designated the same classification for nuclear devices. The Dutch argued that making nuclear devices a war crime might result in nations ignoring the authority of the Court in the future.
