U.S. Concerned About Religious Freedom

WASHINGTON (AP)–The United States expressed concern Wednesday over what it termed severe violations of religious freedom in six countries: Burma, China, Iran, Iraq, North Korea and Sudan.

“Regrettably, the status of religious freedom has not significantly improved in any of these countries” since they were named last year under the U.S. International Religious Freedom Act, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said.

He said the designation of “countries of particular concern” is just one of the tools the United States uses to address religious persecution and bring pressure on governments accused of that practice.
