Oppression pushing Baloch towards self determination: US lawmaker

Alleging that Pakistan has increased the persecution of the people of Balochistan, a key US lawmaker has said that human rights violation and oppression is forcing the restive province towards self-determination.
"Should the government of Pakistan continue to not only neglect but persecute the Baloch people, it is hard to argue with Balochs who demand self-determination," Congressman Ted Poe said.
"In the end, a government is only legitimate as long as it has the support of its people. The government of Pakistan is dangerously close to that line," Poe said.
