Mehran Marri is an exile Baloch nationalist leader striving for the independence of Balochistan from Pakistan.
Mr. Marri’s statement comes in the reaction of the White House’s decision of not standing in the way of Turkish invasion of Kurdish territory.
His statement on twitter is referred to an article published by The Guardian, with the title ‘The Kurds – a bitter history of betrayal’.
The article states that, Donald Trump has given the green light for a Turkish invasion of Kurdish territory. He’s not the first US leader to turn his back on this ethnic group.
