At the invitation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, US Secretary of State Pompeo and Britain's Jeremy Hunt met at the Canterbury Palace with representatives of religious minorities in Britain and listened to their views on religious minorities and the freedom of religion and belief in the world.
"It is regrettable to see the decline in moral values in global politics and the polarization of societies," he said.
"Some leading political leaders are encouraging hate speech and neglecting the status of religious minorities, encouraging their friends to persecute their fellow citizens," he said.
"There are small faiths on the way to extinction and extinction and they are facing persecution because of this policy, even though they have lived in the region for thousands of years," Khoei said.
"The world has heard of Yezidis just because they were exterminated by a preacher, but there are oppressed minorities that we did not care about, such as the Fidel Kurds, the Mandaeans, the Shabak, the Christian components in the Middle East and others."
"They are the victim of Western policies that have turned a blind eye to their suffering," Khoei said.
"Unfortunately, we have not seen any objection or condemnation or condemnation, which encourages these countries to continue to persecute their Shiite citizens," al-Khoei said, referring to the recent attacks by Saudi and Bahraini Shiites.
While others from representatives of other minorities spoke about the situation of minorities in the world, especially in what they are exposed to in the countries of the Middle East.
"Everyone should cooperate to stop the oppression of all religious minorities and not act unilaterally because the danger threatens everybody and includes everyone," Khoei said.
