Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, 9 December 1948.
With regard to reservation (2) made by the United States of America:
"The Estonian Government objects to this reservation on the grounds that it creates uncertainty, as to the extent of the obligations the Government of the United States of America is prepared to assume with regard to the Convention. According to article 27 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, no party may invoke the provisions of its domestic law as justification for failure to perform a treaty."
