The UK is a strong supporter of the International Criminal Court (ICC). As a state party to the Rome Statute the UK has a fully cooperative relationship with the ICC and regular discussions on a range of issues.

The UK encourages non-state parties to accede to the Rome Statute. We are happy to offer support to any State that is in the process of ratifying the Rome Statute or needs assistance in adopting the national legislation needed to enact the Rome Statute.
