​We remain concerned at the infringements of religious freedoms, including the demolition of churches, and continue to raise our concerns with the Government of Sudan as part of our regular dialogue on human rights. Promoting freedom of religion or belief as a means of enhancing tolerance and inclusion will remain a key part of our ongoing engagement.
