US Secretary of State Anthony Blingen said on Wednesday that Iran, Russia and China were countries that did not respect human rights. The State Department released a report on religious freedom on Wednesday, 2020.
Our country’s commitment to protecting the freedom of religion and belief continues for centuries to this day. Religious freedom, like all human rights, is universal. All people everywhere have their rights, no matter where they live, no matter what they believe or do not believe – Pliny insisted.
He pointed out that religious freedom has the same meaning as other rights, including freedom of speech. In his opinion, other rights cannot be fully realized unless they are respected. He considered it an important part of an open and sustainable society.
According to the head of American diplomacy, religious freedom is still unattainable for many in the world. According to the Pew Research Center Think Tank, Blinken stressed that the largest or most severe restrictions can be found in 56 countries.
