The Balochistan fight to separate from Pakistan

Self-exiled Baloch Republican Army (BRA) leader Brahamdagh Bugti said that he is eager to negotiate with the government over the Balochistan issue on Wednesday, according to an interview given to the BBC URDU

“We are ready to stay with Pakistan if our friends, well-wishers, majority of the Baloch people and political allies want the same,” the separatist leader told the BBC URDU in an interview in Switzerland.

Brahamdagh Bugti, 34, is known as one of the most radical leader's  who is against rapprochement with the Pakistani state and has vowed to "fight to the death."

"Development in Balochistan is irrelevant, as a democratic government is not present in the province and the Baloch people were not included in the decision,” said Bugti. He also said that the Baloch people should be added to the development mainstream.

The Baloch leader said he wanted all issues to be resolved through peaceful negotiations and added that the government should take the required steps for talks.

Furthermore, Bugti rejected to accept the incumbent government and he said that they would seek help from anyone.
