Zardari's health improving: Gilani
Islamabad, Dec 11: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, who is undergoing treatment in Dubai for heart complications, is showing improvement and expected to make an "early recovery", authorities
and doctors said, as speculation about his health refused to die down here.
56-year-old Zardari was resting in a Dubai hospital on the advice of doctors, Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani told a TV news channel last evening.
"He (President Zardari) is improving," Gilani said. Gilani said the President, who was feeling comfortable, had talked
to him on phone on Friday when former Premier Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and ex-Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Ilahi called on him at the Prime Minister House.
In a related development, a health bulletin issued from Dubai last evening by Zardari's personal physician said: "The President is making smooth progress and feels better. The treating doctors are confident about an early recovery."
