(Worthy News) - The Government has told the United Nations that freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) "continues to be a priority for the United Kingdom".
In a statement marking the end of the UN's 34th Universal Periodic Review of human rights, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon said that the Government remained "deeply concerned by the scale and severity of violations of the right to freedom of religion or belief around the world".
Lord Ahmad, the Government's Minister of State for the UN, said that work was "already underway" to implement the recommendations of an independent review into religious freedom violations undertaken by the Bishop of Truro on behalf of the Foreign Office. [ Source: Christian Today (Read More...) ]
