Question: What is the State Department position on the idea of separating Balochistan from the rest of Pakistan? Have you seen comments by Rep. Louie Gohmert regarding separating Balochistan from Pakistan?
Answer: The United States respects the territorial integrity of Pakistan. It is not the policy of the Administration to support independence for Balochistan.
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 U.S. government endorsement.
