The 21st century calls for dialogue and democratic values: CM Baloch


Baluchistan Chief Minister, Abdul Malik Baloch, has said that dialogue with separatists is the first and foremost priority of the provincial government. He addressed a ceremony arranged by the World Congress for Overseas Pakistanis. While talking to private TV channels later, Baloch said that a conversation with the separatist Baloch leaders during his visit to London is not part of his schedule as his present environment is not suitable for political dialogues. He said that the provincial government is bound to face challenging issues including militancy. Throwing light on the current situation, he said that 21st century is not the era where the gun and bullet preside; rather it is a time to promote democratic values. He further stated that it is necessary to begin dialogue so that law and order is restored in the Baluchistan.
