star this property answer text We regularly raise our concerns about the rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly with the Egyptian authorities; these rights are essential to improving the protection of Freedom of Religion or Belief in Egypt. The Egyptian constitution contains protections for Freedom of Religious Belief and it is important that these rights are respected. In particular, we welcome President Sisi's consistent calls for peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims in Egypt. The UK has also been working with al-Azhar University in Egypt for over ten years to help develop a new generation of religious leaders who can build dialogue across different cultures and religions, and confront extremism. The work includes English teaching, debating skills training and a postgraduate scholarship scheme. more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We are concerned about terrorist attacks in Egypt that have targeted the Coptic community and about reports of sectarian violence. Following the attacks last year, the Prime Minister, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead, wrote to the President of Egypt to express her deep condolences and reiterate the UK's support for Egypt in its fight against terrorism. Combating sectarian violence is a shared strategic objective for the Egyptian and UK Governments and we welcome President Sisi's calls for peaceful coexistence between communities. The Egyptian Constitution contains protection for Freedom of Religious Belief. It is important that these rights are respected.</p> more like this
