QUETTA: Nawabzada Brahmdagh Bugti, President of the Baloch Republican Party, has welcomed a resolution on Balochistan tabled in the United States’ House of Representatives.    

Brahmdagh Bugti on Wednesday held a telephonic press conference from Switzerland.

He rejected the Balochistan Package and the proposed All Parties Conference by saying that the APC is not the solution to the issue.

He also urged the Chief Minister of Balochistan and other leaders to set aside their personal interests and join the Baloch nationalist movement.

Bugti said that the government move of calling the conference was beyond his understanding.

On one hand dead bodies were being handed over to the Baloch people and on the other hand the rulers are convening the conference, he added.

The Baloch leader also criticised the government for not providing access to NGOs and media to Dera Bugti and other areas of the province.
