Pakistan needs national government, says Musharraf

JEDDAH – Former president Pervez Musharraf has said that a national government should be formed in Pakistan in the country’s best interest, adding that he will definitely return.
“I will definitely go to Pakistan. I am only waiting for my political party to gain ground after which I will go and face the court cases,” Musharraf said in an interview with Arabian language newspaper Al-Sharq AlAusat, adding “I left Pakistan because the judges are political and my life was in threat.”
“A national government is in the country’s best interest. Even a blind person can tell that the statistics were much better during my regime,” he said while commenting on the country’s economic woes. In response to a question he said that he is willing to work with any party. “In my tenure only 9 drone attacks occurred while in this government’s tenure 150 drone attacks have occurred”, the president said, adding that he had not given permission for them.
“America can never win the war on terror since Taliban are Pashtoon and the government is Tajik,” he said, adding that Hamid Karzai had launched the propaganda of dubbing Pakistan more dangerous than Afghanistan. Replying to a query regarding statement of US Secretary of state Hilary Clinton that Osama bin Laden is hiding somewhere in Pakistan the former President said that she prove it.
He rejected the allegation that Pakistan army has Taliban sympathizers or is training them, adding that Pakistani nuclear arsenal was in safe hands.
