Foreign and Commonwealth Office Ministers hold regular discussions with their Turkish counterparts on human rights matters. We strongly support religious freedom in Turkey and are supporting a civil society project that addresses hate speech towards religious minorities. We will continue to raise these important subjects with the Turkish authorities.
