The European Union and its Member States regret the visit of President Omar Al-Bashir to Uganda, a State party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The EU calls upon all Member States of the United Nations to abide by and implement the resolutions adopted by the Security Council under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, notably UNSCR 1593(2005). The EU urges Uganda to respect its obligations under international law and as a State Party to the ICC.
The European Union is committed to enforcing international criminal law and to ending impunity and remains a staunch supporter of the ICC.
