star this property answer text <p>​We are aware that the Chinese authorities published a white paper on protecting freedom of religious belief on 3 April. A draft version of China's regulations on Religious Affairs has been available since September 2016, and we raised our concerns about these draft guidelines at the UK-China human rights dialogue held in Beijing on 27 June 2017.</p><p>We regularly raise our concerns about freedom of religious belief and the full range of human rights concerns with the Chinese Authorities. The Prime Minister raised human rights when she visited China earlier this year.</p><p>The UK regularly delivers item IV statements at the UN Human Rights Council referencing China. We also support EU statements, including the statement at the 37<sup>th</sup> Session of the UN Human Rights Council 14 March 2018, which called upon China to respect the right of freedom of religion.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We remain deeply concerned about the 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 ones faith or belief without discrimination or violent opposition is a 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.</p><p>We raise the full range of our human rights concerns with the Chinese authorities. We recently raised our concerns over restriction of freedom of religion or belief with the Chinese Government in our 27 June 2018 statement at the UN Human Rights Council and during China’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in November 2018.</p><p>We also highlighted our concerns in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy. The report contains details of work the FCO has carried out during the past year to promote human rights, including freedom of religion or belief in China and globally.</p>
