Warsi highlights religious freedom22 January 2013
Britain's faith minister is hosting an unprecedented summit involving ministers from across the world to discuss freedom of religion.
Baroness (Sayeeda) Warsi, Minister for Faith and Communities, has invited representatives from countries across the world to a meeting due to take place at the Foreign Office today.
It is understood that one of the aims of the gathering is to establish a core group of ministers from across the world to work together when incidents of religious intolerance arise.
Representatives from the Vatican, the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, United States, Canada, Pakistan and Indonesia are expected to attend.
A Foreign Office spokesman said they hoped "to build a stronger international consensus on ... how best to deal with religious intolerance and guarantee the right to freedom of religion or belief for all".
