​We are concerned at reports of mistreatment of the Baha'i community by the Houthis in Yemen. We call upon Iran to use its influence with the Houthis to urge that they cease harassment and mistreatment of all religious minorities including the Baha'i. I discussed our human rights concerns with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi in London on 21 February.
