Secretary Clinton Receives USCIRF's 2009 Annual Report

Press Release

Statement from Secretary Clinton

It"s a delight to see some whom I have known for a long time and others who I"m meeting for the first time, and have this chance to talk through some of the issues that are of particular concern to you and to us on behalf of religious freedom and religious expression. We care deeply about it. You heard the President speak about it in his speech in Cairo last week. It"s a core human right and it"s also a core American value. So we"re very grateful to you for your advocacy and hard work on this issue.
