star this property answer text <p>As mentioned in the 2015 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Annual Human Rights report, women do not enjoy the same rights and privileges as men in Iran and continue to face discrimination. There are continued restrictions on freedom of expression and belief. We repeatedly call on the Iranian government to guarantee the human rights of all Iranians and will continue to do so. The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), most recently raised the issue of human rights with Foreign Minister Zarif when they met on the 17 May.</p> more like this

The Minister for Asia and the Pacific raised discrimination against religious minorities with the Ministry of Human Rights during his visit to Pakistan in November 2017.

star this property answer text <p>​The UK welcomes the proposed constitutional reforms in Cuba, which we hope will improve the political, social and economic rights of the Cuban people, including guarantees for freedom of religion and belief. However, human rights violations, including against freedom of religion or belief, remain a cause for concern. The Minister for Europe and the Americas, Sir Alan Duncan, raised these concerns most recently during his meeting with the Cuban Foreign Minister in November. The UK also addresses these issues through multilateral human rights fora, including the UN Universal Periodic Review and the EU-Cuba Human Rights Dialogue.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We strongly condemn the unacceptable harassment and abuse of monitors from the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring and Verification Mission (CTSAMVM) on 18 December 2018. This incident not only constitutes a breach of the 12 September peace agreement, but is also an appalling violation of the human rights of the individuals targeted who are doing an important job in the interests of peace in South Sudan.</p><p>Through our bilateral engagement, and as part of the Troika (with the USA and Norway), we have joined the UN, EU and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development in publicly condemning this incident in the strongest terms. We urge the Government of South Sudan to conduct a full investigation and hold to account those found responsible. CTSAMVM is a vital monitoring mechanism under the peace agreement and any hindrance in their ability to conduct their operations safely and effectively is a hindrance to the peace process itself.</p> more like this
