LAHORE - Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said he believes that Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is dead. In an interview with the BBC, Zardari said: “It seems as if Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Ladin is no longer alive.”
Zardari reiterated that democracy was working well in Pakistan, and the government is determined to fight extremism and root out militancy from the country’s soil.
“The army, the civilian government and democracy could yield better results in the war on terror,” The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying.
Zardari urged the international community to provide more funds to Pakistan and added that the most important issue facing the country was the lack of resources.
He said the military operation against the Taliban could be expanded if the international community provided support. (ANI)
