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 are aware of reports about the recent arrests of journalists, activists and human rights defenders in Egypt, and we have raised this with the Egyptian Government, most recently in May. The UK wishes to see more political progress and better protection of human rights in Egypt, which is why Egypt is an Foreign and Commonwealth Office Human Rights Priority Country. Our concerns about restrictions on freedom of expression in Egypt have been raised by the Foreign Secretary who emphasised the importance of a free and open society with Egypt's President Sisi during his visit to Cairo in February 2017. Ministers consistently raise our human rights concerns with Egyptian interlocutors. We also raise our concerns in public, including at the UN Human Rights Council; in September 2017 our statement noted our concern about media freedom in Egypt.</p> more like this

These include combat aircraft and components as well as precision guided munitions that have been used by Saudi Arabia in Yemen. We do not have specific information on whether equipment licensed by the UK has been used in operations in Hodeidah. We will not licence the export of items where we assess that there is a clear risk that they might be used in the commission of a serious violation of international humanitarian law or international human rights law.</p><p> </p> more like this
