The Foreign Secretary sends his warmest wishes to Christian communities celebrating Easter.
25 March 2016 - The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:
Easter is a season of hope for all Christians. At this time of celebration my thoughts are with all those facing persecution, discrimination and denied the right to worship freely, particularly Christians in the Middle East. This Government has pledged to stand up for the right to live and to worship free from discrimination, and we will continue to work actively to make this a reality.
