APPG statement on appointment of PM’s envoy on FoRB

The UK All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom of Religion or Belief welcomes the appointment of Rehman Chishti MP as the Prime Minister’s new Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief.

The APPG welcomes the decision to make the Special Envoy position a dedicated one, thereby increasing the number of people working on the issue of Freedom of Religion or Belief across Government.

The APPG would like to thank Lord Ahmad for his tireless efforts as the former Special Envoy. APPG members enjoyed an open and productive relationship with Lord Ahmad and his team. We look forward to continuing this relationship and working with Lord Ahmad in his role as a Foreign and Commonwealth Office Minister.

The APPG looks forward to cultivating a similarly fruitful relationship with Mr. Chishti and supporting him to implement many of the recommendations of the Independent review into the FCO’s work to support Persecuted Christians.
