Gilgit-Baltistan: BNF Chief Meets Head of Friends of Gilgit-Baltistan
Chairman Balawaristan National front Abdul Hamid Khan met Mr. Jürgen Creutzmann, the head of Friends of Gilgit-Baltistan in the European Parliament, and discussed the present situation of Gilgit-Baltistan in the context of UN resolutions. It was agreed that the issue should be solved by keeping the views of the indigenous people and Pakistan has to withdraw its forces and civilians by its obligation of its commitment in the court of UN. The people of Gilgit-Baltistan should not be deceived by the so-called elections and its so-called assembly, which does not match with any international standard of democracy, where the local indigenous national parties were not allowed to participate. It means this does not fulfill the aspirations of the people.
