Remarks by USCIRF Chair Dr. Katrina Lantos Swett "Religious Freedom in Egypt: Recommendations for U.S. Policy" at the Coptic Solidarity Third Annual Conference

I want to thank Mr. Adel Guindy and Coptic Solidarity for giving me the opportunity to speak briefly this afternoon about the status of religious freedom in Egypt and the recommendations our Commission is offering to address this serious situation.

Since its inception nearly 15 years ago, USCIRF has been deeply engaged on Egypt and for good reason:

For our entire existence, and indeed, prior to our creation, religious freedom conditions, including those of Egypt's Coptic population, have been extremely concerning.

Remarks by USCIRF Chair Dr. Katrina Lantos Swett at Hill Reception Co-Sponsored by USCIRF and the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission Celebrating the Visit of His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

Speaking for all of my USCIRF colleagues, I am delighted to join members of Congress, His Holiness, and our gracious Ahmadiyya hosts here in our nation's capital.

Soon you will hear His Holiness speak about his vision of peace and freedom among peoples and nations. This has been the Ahmadiyya message since its founding in 1889, well over a century ago.
