Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain underlining the need for a negotiated settlement of issues relating to Balochistan has said that use of force would be the "last option" for the government there.
Hussain said the ruling government was trying to find an amicable solution to the manifold problems in the troubled province by holding dialogue with disgruntled elements.
"The government is working to pave the way for having dialogue with the disgruntled Baloch leaders. Restoration of peace through political means remains first priority of the government," he stated.
The President told the Balochistan Cabinet yesterday that use of force against disgruntled elements would be the last option for the government in Balochistan.
Baluchistan is a mineral and resource rich province but has been hit by insurgency, sectarian violence and militancy in recent years.
President Hussain is visiting the volatile province at a time when insurgents in particular have stepped up attacks and yesterday morning a bomb blast in a train at the Sibi railway station killed at least 16 people and left over 40 injured.

The election of Mamnoon Hussain, nominated by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-N party, followed a late night attack by 150 Taliban militants on a prison, illustrating one of the major challenges facing the new president. The fighters freed more than 250 prisoners, including 38 suspected militants, and killed 14 people, including guards and Shiite Muslim prisoners, officials said.
Pakistan's largely ceremonial president is not elected by popular vote, but by lawmakers in the Senate, National Assembly and the assemblies of the four provinces. Tuesday's outcome was widely predicted because the PML-N won majorities in the National Assembly and the assembly of Pakistan's most populous province, Punjab, in June, all but assuring that Hussain would win.
Hussain received 432 votes from lawmakers on Tuesday, said the head of Pakistan's election commission, Fakhruddin Ibrahim.
...
Hussain was born to an industrialist family in 1940 in the Indian city of Agra. His family settled in Karachi, the capital of Sindh province, after Pakistan was carved out of British India in 1947, and set up a textile business there.
Hussain is a longtime member of the PML-N and served as governor of Sindh for about four months in 1999, but otherwise has not been a prominent figure in national politics.
Hussain will replace the current president, Asif Ali Zardari, whose five-year term ends on Sept. 8.
