Bill Clinton announced December 31 that the United States is signing the 1998 Rome Treaty on the International Criminal Court, but said he will recommend that President-elect George W. Bush not submit the treaty to the Senate until "fundamental concerns are satisfied." Following is the text of the president's statement, released at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland:

    ...The United States is today signing the 1998 Rome Treaty on the International Criminal Court. In taking this action, we join more than 130 other countries that have signed by the December 31, 2000 deadline established in the Treaty. We do so to reaffirm our strong support for international accountability and for bringing to justice perpetrators of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. We do so as well because we wish to remain engaged in making the ICC an instrument of impartial and effective justice in the years to come.
