The U.S. ambassador for religious freedom said this Sunday that China ought to grant its people more religious freedom. This freedom would go a long way in boosting the trust the people of Taiwan would have in the government. He went to mention the persecution of Muslims in particular. However, China has opposed any accusations of religious persecution.
