US stands for Pakistan’s integrity: State Department


The Obama administration has dismissed the suggestion by a Republican Congressman about making Balochistan a separate country, making it clear that Washington stands for territorial integrity of Pakistan.
“The United States respects the territorial integrity of Pakistan. It is not the policy of the Administration to support independence for Balochistan,” the State Department said.
The US comments came in response to a question on Texan Congressman Louie Gohmert’s notion.
“We are aware of Representative Gohmert’s comments. Members of Congress express a wide range of views. Such comments do not in any way imply US government endorsement,” the Office of Spokesperson at the State Department added.
