Musharraf wanted Iran to make peace with Israel
Washington: Former Pakistani leader Pervez Musharraf has said that he tried valiantly as president to convince Iran to make peace with Israel and abandon its nuclear ambitions.
Musharraf, during an interview conducted by Atlantic Media Company owner David Bradley, spoke about his 2006 "peace effort" to bring reconciliation between Israel and the Arab world.
Musharraf flew to Iran to visit President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and said he tried to get Iran to pursue a path to peace with Israel, The Foreign Policy Magazine reports.
He said that he urged the Islamic nation to move away from nuclear weapons development, but he made no progress.
“They are determined to develop a nuclear arsenal... I did not succeed,” the report quoted him, as saying.
“But Iran is not posed any threat, so they need not go nuclear,” he added.
