The Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Human Rights and Democracy report gives our annual assessment on the situation of human rights internationally, including in the Middle East. We are committed to ensuring the protection of human rights of all minority communities, combating religious intolerance and promoting pluralism in society. We raise these issues regularly with partner countries in the region.
