Positions in the United States concerning the ICC vary widely. The Clinton Administration signed the Rome Statute in 2000, but did not submit it for Senate ratification. The Bush Administration, the US administration at the time of the ICC's founding, stated that it would not join the ICC. The Obama Administration has subsequently re-established a working relationship with the Court

The Obama Administration has stated its intent to cooperate with the ICC. Cooperation with the Assembly of States Parties of the ICC is a key component of the Obama Administration's first National Security Strategy.[17] On November 16, 2009, the Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues, Stephen Rapp, announced that he would lead the US delegation to the ICC's annual meeting of the Assembly of States Parties in The Hague. He told journalists "Our government has now made the decision that Americans will return to engagement at the ICC." The US participated as an observer. This was the first time the US had a delegation attend the ICC's annual meeting of the Assembly.[18]
