Angelina Jolie has made her first appearance following her divorce from Brad Pitt.

In her first official appearance (albeit digital) in months, Angelina Jolie spoke out about the International Criminal Court's new policy on children in a taped message on Friday.

'Successful prosecution, whether at the ICC or elsewhere is part of the long and vital generational effort. That is the light in which I believe the court’s new policy on children should be seen,' the 41-year-old Oscar winner said in a clip.

'I particularly welcome the commitment to include charges for crimes against children wherever the evidence permits as part of a more systematic approach. I congratulate the office of the chief prosecutor, and all those working on the policy.'

'Mankind owes to children. We know we aren't giving the best to children.'

'There can be no complete justice without consideration for the victims of the war crimes themselves, and the practical assistance they need to move on with their lives and overcome the harm they have suffered,' Angelina noted.

'That is why the work of the trust fund is important and must be supported and strengthened over time.'

The ICC also tweeted about Jolie's video appearance. "#AngelinaJolie welcomes #OTP policy: Mankind owes to #children," the organization wrote. "We know we aren't giving the best to children. #ICCProsecutor4Children #ICC."

Jolie has maintained a low-profile since she filed for divorce from estranged husband Brad Pitt in September.
