star this property answer text We remain concerned about reports of persecution of Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Falun Gong practitioners and others on the grounds of their religion or belief in China. The freedom to practise, change or share one’s faith or belief without discrimination or violent opposition is a fundamental human right that all people should enjoy. We believe that societies which aim to guarantee freedom of religion or belief are more stable, prosperous and more resilient against violent extremism. The UK last raised these issues with China at the UK/China Human Rights Dialogue in June 2017. more like this

star this property answer text <p>​​We continue to be deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Rakhine State following the outbreak of violence there in August. While we believe military operations have largely ceased, reports of attacks by vigilantes continue and hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh as a result of the security forces' actions. The Rohingya are seeking refuge because they feel intimidated, they lack humanitarian support and they continue to lack access to livelihoods. There have been reports of serious human rights violations, including sexual violence and extra-judicial killings in Rakhine State.</p><p>The current situation emphasises the importance of addressing the underlying issues in Rakhine. The UK believes implementation of Kofi Annan's Rakhine Advisory Commission's recommendations is the best way to achieve longer term resolution of the problems in Rakhine which face all communities there. The UK has been working intensively with international partners to bring pressure to bear on the Burmese government to meet this goal, most recently with the agreement of a Presidential Statement at the UNSC on 6 November. This called on the Burmese government to address the root causes of the conflict, including through the implementation of Kofi Annan's recommendations, for the safe return of the Rohingya refugees back into Rakhine, a transparent investigation of human rights violations, including those of sexual violence, as well as cooperation of the government with UN organisations and access for humanitarian and media organisations to Rakhine</p>

If the Burmese authorities do not heed the calls of the UN Security Council Presidential Statement of 6 November, the Foreign Secretary will use the December Foreign Affairs Council to discuss with counterparts what additional measures the EU should consider.

The UK engages with India on human rights issues, including religious freedom and minority rights, both bilaterally and through the EU. Our High Commission in New Delhi monitors the human rights situation in India and maintains a dialogue with the Indian National Commission for Minorities often via our Consulate General in the country.</p><p>FCO officials in New Delhi also regularly meet senior faith leaders to discuss issues such as religious tolerance, including most recently with a representative from a Christian organisation in India in June.
