Pakistan has condemned a resolution tabled in US House of Representatives seeking Balochistan’s ‘sovereignty’.
The resolution has noted that “Balochistan is currently divided between Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan with no sovereign rights of its own,” and that, “Baloch people are subjected to violence and extrajudicial killings.”
In its reaction on Saturday, Pakistan’s Foreign Office protested against the US move and refused the bill, terming it violation of international laws.
“The resolution is based on Ignorance and lack of understanding. This would be taken as clear interference in Pakistan’s internal affairs,” the foreign office spokesman said in his reaction.
He warned the US authorities against any irresponsible step, asserting that such acts would not be tolerated.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz on Saturday moved an adjourned motion in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly against a resolution of US lawmaker in the Congress, seeking independence of Balochistan.
The motion was moved by PML-N lawmaker Javed Abbasi. He said that the US resolution was a conspiracy against Pakistan.
