We have concerns about all restrictions placed on freedom of religion and belief in China, including those placed on Christians in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province. We regularly raise our concerns with Chinese counterparts and did so most recently during the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue on 19-20 May 2014. We also raise our concerns publicly through our Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy, last published on 10 April 2014 and updated on 30 June 2014.
