We have had no discussions with the Burmese Government on the signing of the Rome Statute.

However, we continue to support UN Human Rights Council and UN General Assembly resolutions which encourage the Burmese Government to conform to established international human rights principles in a number of areas. We continue to stress that, until the Burmese Government resolve the many outstanding issues, we will press for UN resolutions which highlight the strength of our concerns.
