Secretary Kerry on Release of 2013 Religious Freedom Report

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, D.C.
July 28, 2014 

SECRETARY KERRY: Good morning, everybody. How are you? 

AUDIENCE: Morning.

SECRETARY KERRY: Is everybody good? So I’m going to make – David, I want you out here with me, if you would. Tom, why don’t you come out here on the other side. Thank you, sir. I’m going to make a statement, and then I need to rush out of here because I have a phone call literally in about 10 minutes. And I’ll leave Tom Malinowski and David here with you. David is a nominee, and therefore not going to be able to say anything at this point in time, but I wanted to have a chance to introduce him to all of you as we release the International Religious Freedom Report, which we believe is a very important statement that underscores a major challenge around the world. It is also a pleasure for me to introduce President Obama’s nominee to serve as our Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. [more]

Secretary Kerry Remarks on the Release of the Annual Country Reports on Human Rights

Well, good morning, everybody. Excuse me. I’ve got a little allergies this morning, I think.

I’m delighted to be here this morning for the second Human Rights report that I have issued as Secretary, and I’m particularly pleased to be here with our Acting Assistant Secretary for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, Uzra Zeya, who as I think all of you know, is performing these responsibilities in the capacity as an interim assistant secretary but who has done just a spectacular job and has led the Department in a year-long process to track and make the assessments that are reflected here. So I thank her for a job particularly well done on this year’s Human Rights Report. [Full Text]

Advancing Freedom and Democracy Reports

--Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of State

Pursuant to Section 2121 of the ADVANCE Democracy Act of 2007 (P.
