US Congressman tables resolution calling for independence of Balochistan

A week after he chaired a Congressional committee’s hearing on Balochistan, US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher introduced tabled a resolution in the US Congress, asking for the Baloch be given their right of self-determination and to their own sovereign country.
The House Concurrent Resolution in the US House of Representatives has been co-sponsored by Representatives Louie Gohmert and Steve King. It highlights the history of Balochistan, and says that revolts in 1958, 1973 and 2005 “indicate continued popular discontent against rule by Islamabad, and the plunder of its vast natural wealth while Baluchistan remains the poorest province in Pakistan.”
