  International Court of Justice-Related:  Why the Baloch have a case: background
The Quaid-i-Azam, Mountbatten and the Indian states, by M.H. KHAN (The writer is Editor, Quaid-i-Azam Papers Project.), Business Recorder, Dec 25, 2007: Jinnah had problems dealing with his friend, the Khan of Kalat, who claimed independent sovereign status for his State. Pakistan conceded his claim once paramountcy had lapsed in the negotiations held on 19 July 1947, with Crown Representative Mountbatten in chair, who stated that on the lapse of paramountcy "states would de jure become independent; but de facto, very few were likely to benefit... that although Kalat would have gained freedom, no practical course other than some form of association with Pakistan was open to it".
