We regularly raise our concerns about human rights, including freedom of religion or belief, with the government of Pakistan. We do this at a senior level and the Foreign Secretary has discussed these issues with the Foreign Minister of Pakistan. As the Prime Minister has made clear in Parliament, the UK government’s primary concern is for the safety and well-being of Asia Bibi and her family. We are in contact with international parties about our shared desire to see a swift and positive resolution of the situation.
