The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced today that the Honourable Robert Oliphant, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, will attend events to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, United States, on July 17 and 18, 2023.

The adoption of the Statute of Rome in July 1998 represents a milestone in the maintenance of international peace and security, as it led to the creation of the International Criminal Court, an independent court of last resort with jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute the most serious crimes of international concern, namely genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression.

While in New York, Parliamentary Secretary Oliphant will also attend the United Nations General Assembly Plenary Meeting on the Situation in the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine, where he will reaffirm Canada’s unwavering commitment to support the Ukrainian people as they fight against Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified war of aggression.
