We raise our concerns about freedom of religion with the Government of Sudan as part of our regular engagement on human rights issues. Officials from our Embassy in Khartoum most recently raised this issue with the External Affairs Secretariat of the National Congress Party (the ruling party in Sudan) and the government’s National Human Rights Commission. We have highlighted our concerns about the case involving Khartoum Bahri Evangelical Church and are seeking a meeting with the Government of Sudan.
