Secretary Pompeo “Freedom of religion is a cherished American value and a fundamental freedom. Only by fully embracing and protecting religious freedom can countries achieve their economic aspirations, ensure security, and eradicate terrorism. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, including the freedom to change one’s religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his or her religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”
Each year the Department of State submits an annual report to Congress on the status of religious freedom. See the 2019 report on Kazakhstan here (PDF, 202 KB)
*We will post the Kazakh and Russian translations of the report when available.
