​Support for international criminal justice and accountability – at the national or international level - is a fundamental element of our foreign policy. We have always been clear that the International Criminal Court can play an important role in ending impunity for the most serious international crimes. It has our full support in pursuing the mandate it was given under the Rome Statute.
