No possibility of unilateral withdrawal from Siachen: Zardari
Okara, Apr 20: President Asif Ali Zardari has said Pakistan there is no possibility of unilateral withdrawal from Siachen.
Addressing a gathering of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) workers here, President Asif Ali Zardari on Friday said that Pakistan cannot unilaterally withdraw its forces from Siachen.
“If India withdraws its forces from Siachen then Pakistan would do so too,” said President Zardari.
He signaled a possible opening of the Head Sulemanki border for future trade with India.
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. DAWN
