​We remain concerned about restrictions on freedom of religion or belief, and on the rights of ethnic minorities in China. We issued a further item IV statement at the 35th UN Human Rights Council in June reiterating these concerns. We also raised these matters directly with the Chinese authorities at the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue in Beijing on 27 June.
