It resulted in a drastic change in weather patterns; draught has engulfed the areas, thousands of years old springs have dried up, fields turned into barren lands, he added, according to The Balochistan Post.
The spokesperson appealed to the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to dispatch an inquiry team to Balochistan in order to investigate effects of atomic radiations.
Further, he said that twenty-one years ago the "occupying state" of Pakistan tested nuclear bomb on Baloch land at Chaghi and put the entire "Baloch nation" at the risk of nuclear radiation and till today the Baloch were suffering due to its residuals effects.
On the issue related to world peace and security of the region, he pointed out that Pakistani nuclear weapons should be taken into the "custody", because if Pakistan has these nuclear weapons the idea of world peace would remain "unachievable".
