Washington—The US respects the unity and territorial integrity of Pakistan and does not support independence for Balochistan, a state department official has said.
“The government policy is that we support the territorial integrity of Pakistan and we do not support independence for Balochistan,” State Department Spokesman John Kirby told reporters at his daily news conference Wednesday.
Kirby was responding to a question by an Indian journalist who said “Where does the US stand on Balochistan? Because Prime minister Narendra Modi has raised this subject”.—INP
