No possibility of unilateral withdrawal from Siachen, says Zardari
OKARA: Pakistan’s president has signaled a possible opening of the Head Sulemanki border for future trade with India.
Addressing a gathering of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) workers in Okara, President Asif Ali Zardari on Friday said that Pakistan can not unilaterally withdraw it’s forces from Siachen.
If India withdraws it’s forces from Siachen then Pakistan would do so too, said President Zardari.
Continuing with his criticism of the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), Zardari remarked that the Sharif brothers were “princes with a Mughal mindset”.
Moreover, Zardari claimed that the Punjab government was “handed over” to the Sharif brothers by the PPP, and that they could take it away any time.
The president said that had all powers when the PPP was elected, and could have toppled the government, but he handed over powers to the parliament.
“That is the difference between the PPP and other parties,” he remarked.
Zardari, who arrived in Okara on Friday, also inaugurated an orphanage and the Benazir Education City.
