The UK is committed to defending freedom of religion or belief for all. We condemn the persecution of any individual or group based on their religion of belief. South Sudan is an FCDO Human Rights priority country, and we continue to call on the Government of South Sudan - including through the UN Human Rights Council - to end impunity for human rights violations and abuses, and establish the necessary justice and accountability mechanisms.
