The UK remains concerned by the restrictions on freedom of religion or belief in Sudan, including the demolition of churches such as at the Al Haj Yousif site, and we will continue to raise our concerns with the Government of Sudan as part of our ongoing human rights dialogue. Promoting freedom of religion or belief as a means of enhancing tolerance and inclusion will remain an integral part of our ongoing engagement with the Government of Sudan.
