Kerry Urges Nations to Fight Religious Persecution

Ad Feedback

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry marked "International Religious Freedom Day" by urging people and governments to speak out against religious persecution.

On Sunday, he said freedom of religion is a priority because it is essential to human dignity and individual liberty, and is "enshrined" in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The declaration states that people everywhere have the right to practice, teach, or even change their religion.

U.S. ambassador for International Religious Freedom Suzan Johnson Cook resigned earlier this month.
