ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari Monday said that peace and reconciliation in Balochistan must receive high priority and asked for resolving the issue of missing persons.

Addressing joint sitting of the Parliament for the sixth time, the President said that a Commission on Missing Persons had already been set up and it had also made some progress.

The President said that a lot more needed to be done on this issue and it could be done.

"I am confident the new government will overcome the challenges," the President added.

President Zardari pointed towards these problems in Balochistan at a time when the newly elected Chief Minister of the Province Dr Abdul Malik Baloch in his maiden address to the Provincial Assembly said that the missing persons, kidnapping for ransom and migration of the people from the province were the biggest problems.
