QUETTA: A three-member delegation of the Balochistan government headed by tribal elder and Minister for Services and General Administration Department Nawab Muhammad Khan Shahwani reached London to hold talks with the self-exiled Baloch leader and Khan of Kalat, Mir Suleman Dawood Jan.

“The government delegation comprising tribal elders and leaders of National Party reached London two days ago,” a senior official of the Balochistan government told Dawn, adding that the delegation had left for London after receiving green signal from Mir Suleman.

The delegation will meet him and try to persuade him to return to the country and play his role in resolving the problems facing Balochistan.

Other members of the delegation are MNA Sardar Kamal Khan Bangulzai, Senator Kabir Muhammadshi and Mir Khalid Khan Langove, adviser to Chief Minister for Finance. Chief Minister Dr Abdul Malik Baloch is already in London.

Senior Minister and chief of Jhalawan tribe, Nawab Sanaullah Zehri, who had announced last week that he would visit London soon to meet Khan of Kalat, was not among the government team.

It may be mentioned that the federal government has given mandate to the chief minister for approaching Khan of Kalat and other self-exiled Baloch leaders to bring them back so that they could play their role in settling the Balochistan crisis.
