Pakistan has conveyed its objections on the discussion of Balochistan issue in the US Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee.

Commenting on Iran’s issue, he said the volatile region cannot afford outbreak of war, and the issue should be resolved with negotiations.
Chairman of Pakistan’s Parliamentary Committee on National Security (PCNS) Senator Raza Rabbani stated, “The US is trying to internationalize the issue and foreign office of Pakistan should explain its stance as it’s a domestic and sensitive issue.”
