"On May 28, 1998, Pakistanconducted five simultaneous underground nuclear test at Ras Koh Hills in the Chagai District of Balochistan against the Baloch citizen's will and mandate, a crime against humanity and against all international laws," the statementread.
Due to the after effects of those nuclear tests, thousands of local Balochs suffered due to diseases, such as blood cancer and birth defects, caused by the spread of radiations in the air.
The underground water resources were disappeared and thousand Baloch citizens lost their livestocks and livelihood, and were forced to leave their homes and were displaced without any compensation.
"Pakistan should be held accountable for that crime against the Baloch people and those who were affected by the effects of those nuclear tests must be compensated", said Dr. Baloch, the President of BNC.
"Balochistan, an independent state was forcefully occupied and annexed into Pakistan by Pakistan's army on March 28, 1948 and since then the Baloch people are fighting the Pakistan's illegal and unjust occupation of their homeland to re-gain their lost and stolen freedom from Pakistan," the statementmaintained.
"Pakistan, a terrorist state, created out of India in 1947, is the home of more than 35 terrorist organizations. It is a serious threat to regional peace and stability and world peace," the statement added.
"It is duty of United States and the civilized world community to peacefully denuclearize and dismantle Pakistan through the UNO so that everyone in the region can live in peace", said Dr Baloch.
BNC have urged the world community to come forward and help the Baloch people in their fight for freedom and justice against the illegal occupation of their homeland Balochistan and exploitation of their natural resources by Pakistan and Iran. (ANI)
