WASHINGTON: Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US Sherry Rehman expressed serious concern on Sunday over Congressman Dana Rohrabacher’s resolution on Balochistan, in a letter addressed to US House of Representatives speaker John Boehner.
According to the official sources, the letter says that such “statements and resolutions in contravention of UN charter and international norms could undermine Pakistan-US relations.”
The letter comes after Congressman Rohrabacher introduced a House Concurrent Resolution in February, calling upon Pakistan to recognise the Baloch right to self determination
Rohrabacher, who is also the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, had earlier chaired a Congressional hearing on human rights violations in Balochistan.
The Republican Congressman also introduced bills calling for Dr Shakil Afridi, the doctor who helped the CIA in confirming Bin Laden’s identity, to be given US citizenship and be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
