After US encouragement, Baloch active at the UN

GENEVA: Exiled Balochs have stepped up their movement at the international level with a highly visible and vocal presence this year at the 19th Session of UN Human Rights Council.
Pakistani lobbyists, Kashmiri and Gilgiti groups - both for and against Pakistan - are also active organising briefings and meetings, including interventions at the main UN debate on human rights issues, but the Baloch delegates are receiving the most attention from NGOs and delegates from various parts of the world.
This year’s session comes soon after the US Congressional hearing which led to the tabling of resolution in the US Congress by congressmen Dana Rohrabacher, Lousie Gohmert and Steve King calling for the right of self-determination of Balochistan.
