Baloch nationalist leader Dr Allah Nazar Baloch in a statement has strongly condemned Saudi Arabia’s announcement of partnership with Pakistan and China on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), calling it a major violation of international laws and direct participation in the genocide of the people of Balochistan.
“Balochistan is an occupied land, any economic investment in such disputed territory is against the spirit of international laws.” he said.
“There is an ongoing war for freedom in Balochistan and the people are defending their homeland. Saudi Arabia must refrain from partnering with Pakistan and China here, otherwise they will be seen no different than enemy” the statement said.
Dr Allah Nazar said that Saudi’s participation would not only promote religious extremism in the region but also pose a serious threat in destroying the secular values of the Baloch society.
Addressing Chinese presence in Balochistan, the Pro-Independent leader warned that China must pull out its investments asap and understand they will face fierce resistance; “The Baloch people will not allow their valuable sacrifices to go in vain” he said.
“CPEC has brought more bloodshed to Balochistan and China’s military and economic support to Pakistan has forced thousands to flee their homes that come in the route of CPEC project.” he said.
