Islamabad: Pakistan has "hard evidence" that foreign agencies are involved in the unrest in Balochistan, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said.
Gilani made the statement during a visit to Quetta Sunday, the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) reported.

The prime minister did not elaborate, but Pakistan has repeatedly accused India of fomenting trouble in the country`s biggest province.

Gilani also said that the government was ready for a political dialogue with "estranged leaders" of Balochistan, an official euphemism for Baloch nationalists.

APP said he appreciated the efforts of the Balochistan government to improve the law and order situation in the province.
