The British Government continues to be deeply concerned by reports of the demolition of churches in Sudan. Through the UK-Sudan Strategic Dialogue, and our policy of phased engagement, we continue to raise human rights issues with the government of Sudan and make regular representations on freedom of religion or belief, including in relation to reported church demolitions, most recently during the Archbishop of Canterbury’s visit to Sudan in July.
