Push for Religious Freedom in China

China should act to ensure religious freedoms, a top US opposition lawmaker said at the close of an Asia trip held as President Barack Obama also visits the region.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the number-two Republican in the lower chamber of the US Congress, was speaking in China as a bipartisan congressional delegation he was leading concluded. "Religion is something that's constitutionally protected for us, and we want to be able to promote that as a human right across the world," Cantor told AFP from Shanghai late Saturday at the end of a trip to China, South Korea and Japan.
