Brussels, 21 May 2013 – In a series of meetings organised in Washington D.C. on 1-9 May 2013 by the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO), Nasser Boladai and Aziz Dorani, both member of the Balochistan Peoples Party (BPP) engaged in constructive dialogues with members of the US Congress and Senate, regarding the alarming human rights situation facing the ethnic Baloch people in Iran and Pakistan. Mr Boladai and Mr Dorani urged the US lawmakers to pressure Iran and Pakistan to stop the systematic repression exerted upon the secular Baloch people.

Following a brief historical background on the region of Balochistan, from its independence to its division and annexation into Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran, the heart of the discussions lay in the severity of the human rights violations including arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances, acts of torture and extra-judicial killings. The Baloch delegation highlighted the poor access to education and basic services, restrictions on the freedom of religion and the space for political organizations to campaign for the rights of the Baloch.
