To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the effect of restrictions of movement for Baloch people living in Pakistan on human rights in that region.

We are aware of concerning reports of restrictions on movement in Balochistan. The British Government strongly condemns the persecution of all minorities, including the targeting of people based on their ethnicity or beliefs. We continue to urge the Government of Pakistan to guarantee the fundamental rights of all its citizens, as laid down in the Constitution of Pakistan and in accordance with international standards.
