Language used by Zardari against army doesn’t befit: Asif


ISLAMABAD: Defense Minister Khawaja Asif says the language used by Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari against the army does not befit a former president.


In a statement, he said our valiant soldiers are fighting war of our existence.

In an uncharacteristically aggressive speech, Zardari on Tuesday lashed out against what he called “the character assassination of his party” and warned the military leadership that if they did not stop, he would expose the misdeeds of many generals.

The former president said army chiefs come and go every three years but the political leadership was here to stay. “We know the country better and we know how to run its affairs,” Zardari stressed.
