Human rights, including the protection of freedom of religion or belief, is a UK foreign policy priority. As part of our bilateral relationship with Kuwait, we discuss human rights at both ministerial and official level and where we have concerns we raise them with the appropriate authority. We have not made any recent representations to the Government of Kuwait on respect for religious freedom.
