Amid a looming confrontation
between the Supreme Court and the government, Pakistan
President Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday made it clear that he did not intend to resign even as an urgent session of parliament has
been called to consider the situation.
A Pak court has issued notices
to President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, cricketer-turned-politician
Imran Khan in response to a plea seeking the disclosure of their assets.
PM Yousuf Raza Gilani met Prez Asif Ali Zardari to discuss the current political and security situation in the country amid strained US-Pakistan ties over an accusation that ISI supported the Al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani network.
President Asif Ali Zardari said that Pakistan valued its close bilateral ties with Saudi Arabia as ISI chief Lt. Gen. Shuja Pasha left for that country Monday amid strained ties between Islamabad and Washington.
