The UK consistently urges the Government of Iraq at senior levels to uphold the rights of all Iraq's minorities, including Christians. We also continue to encourage political and religious leaders in Iraq to speak out publicly to condemn sectarian violence. Furthermore, we are working to build international consensus on upholding freedom of religion or belief.
