22 U.S.C. § 7424 : US Code - Section 7424: Restriction on United States participation in certain United Nations peacekeeping operations

    (a) Policy
      Effective beginning on the date on which the Rome Statute enters
    into force pursuant to Article 126 of the Rome Statute, the
    President should use the voice and vote of the United States in the
    United Nations Security Council to ensure that each resolution of
    the Security Council authorizing any peacekeeping operation under
    chapter VI of the charter of the United Nations or peace
    enforcement operation under chapter VII of the charter of the
    United Nations permanently exempts, at a minimum, members of the
    Armed Forces of the United States participating in such operation
    from criminal prosecution or other assertion of jurisdiction by the
    International Criminal Court for actions undertaken by such
    personnel in connection with the operation.
    (b) Restriction
      Members of the Armed Forces of the United States may not
    participate in any peacekeeping operation under chapter VI of the
    charter of the United Nations or peace enforcement operation under
    chapter VII of the charter of the United Nations, the creation of
    which is authorized by the United Nations Security Council on or
    after the date that the Rome Statute enters into effect pursuant to
    Article 126 of the Rome Statute, unless the President has submitted
    to the appropriate congressional committees a certification
    described in subsection (c) of this section with respect to such
    operation.
    (c) Certification
      The certification referred to in subsection (b) of this section
    is a certification by the President that - 
        (1) members of the Armed Forces of the United States are able
      to participate in the peacekeeping or peace enforcement operation
      without risk of criminal prosecution or other assertion of
      jurisdiction by the International Criminal Court because, in
      authorizing the operation, the United Nations Security Council
      permanently exempted, at a minimum, members of the Armed Forces
      of the United States participating in the operation from criminal
      prosecution or other assertion of jurisdiction by the
      International Criminal Court for actions undertaken by them in
      connection with the operation;
        (2) members of the Armed Forces of the United States are able
      to participate in the peacekeeping or peace enforcement operation
      without risk of criminal prosecution or other assertion of
      jurisdiction by the International Criminal Court because each
      country in which members of the Armed Forces of the United States
      participating in the operation will be present either is not a
      party to the International Criminal Court and has not invoked the
      jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court pursuant to
      Article 12 of the Rome Statute, or has entered into an agreement
      in accordance with Article 98 of the Rome Statute preventing the
      International Criminal Court from proceeding against members of
      the Armed Forces of the United States present in that country; or
        (3) the national interests of the United States justify
      participation by members of the Armed Forces of the United States
      in the peacekeeping or peace enforcement operation.
