Practice Relating to Rule 139. Respect for International Humanitarian Law
In its oral pleadings before the ICJ in the Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide case (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Serbia and Montenegro) in 2006, Bosnia and Herzegovina stated:
A concluding remark concerning the prevention and punishment of the crime of genocide. It seems to be beyond question … that all States are subject to the obligation to “respect and ensure respect” for the 1948 [Genocide] Convention, just as they must “respect and ensure respect” for the various international humanitarian law instruments, such as the four Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, whose common Article 1 expressly states this principle.
