The Rights of Armenian Apostolic Church and Christians are Violated Especially in Turkey.

A new report highlights religious discrimination against Armenians.

 


The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom presented annual report which includes the countries of peculiar concern and display intolerance towards the religious minorities.


The report has listed 14 states, the first among which is Egypt, where instances of violence have increased escalating against Coptic Christians and other religious minorities, mainly with the connivance of the former government and current authorities. The list also includes Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Burma, China, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and other countries.


The Commission appealed to the US Foreign Ministry to designate the 14 states included in the list as countries of particular concern. This may serve as basis for applying sanctions against these states in future.
