We regularly call upon Iran to cease harassment of all religious minorities, including members of the Baha'i faith, and to fulfil its international and domestic obligations to protect freedom of religion or belief. I discussed human rights, including freedom of religion, when I met my Iranian counterpart, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, in Tehran in September.
