The UK is committed to the promotion of human rights, including freedom of religion and belief. Whilst we have not held specific discussions with the Philippine Government on religious freedoms, we have had regular discussions on human rights, including raising our concerns about the "war on drugs" and the treatment of human rights defenders. My officials most recently met with their Philippine counterparts at the UK/Philippines High Level talks that took place on 19th November, where these issues were raised.
