ISLAMABAD - The Senate of Pakistan has suspended activities of Pakistan-Switzerland Friendship Group (PSFG) to protest the appearance of "Free Balochistan" posters in Geneva.

"According to the United Nations' Charter, no state can allow its soil to be used against another state," Rabbani said and added the Senate has decided to suspend PSFG activities till further notice.

The Senate Chairman claimed that the posters were an attack on Pakistan's sovereignty and demanded to know from Law Minister Zahid Hamid why the posters continue to be displayed in Switzerland even though Pakistan had summoned the Swiss ambassador and recorded its protest.

In their speeches, Senators from the opposition benches demanded action against Foreign Office and Pakistan's embassy in Switzerland for their failure to take appropriate action against the 'anti-state activity' in a foreign country claiming to be the champion of human rights, reiterated their demand to expel the Swiss ambassador from the country.

They described placing of Free Balochistan posters in Geneva as part of a conspiracy and silence of Swiss government over it.
