ISLAMABAD: Deputy Chief of Mission, US Embassy Islamabad, Richard E. Hoagland said supporting Balochistan independence is not the policy of the Obama administration.

While talking to Geo News, the US diplomat said the US respected Pakistan’s sovereignty.

Clarifying a resolution presented in US Congress about Balochistan he said, Balochistan is an important issue but not part of US foreign policy.

‘We have taken up the matter of human rights violation in the province with Pakistan. More than 4000 resolutions/Bills were presented in the Congress in a year but only 91 got approval.’
