The Foreign Secretary, myself, and and other British Government Ministers regularly raise our concerns about the persecution of religious minorities, including Christians, where this occurs. The Foreign Secretary recently asked the Bishop of Truro to conduct an independent review of the persecution of Christians around the world to help inform this important area of our work and ensure it is targeted and effective. Over recent months, ministers and diplomats have raised religious freedom issues in many countries.
