London, Sep.10 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf still relishes his days in Presidency when he maintained a 'good friendship' with his former US counterpart George Bush.

In an interview with a private television channel, Musharraf described Bush, as a 'very good man' and 'a good friend' of his.

Musharraf said he specially liked Bush's straight forwardness.

"I think President Bush was a very sincere person, he was a very straight-talking, upright man. I like that in a man. A man who can look into your eyes and talk straight," Musharraf said

"In the military, my experience shows if you look into the eyes of a person ... you can see from the glint in their eyes whether they like the man or not. I think everyone (who worked for him) loved him," The News quoted Musharraf, as saying.

When asked about the expectations the Muslim world has with Barack Obama, Musharraf said Obama has a daunting task ahead of him as the Islamic countries have huge hope from him.

"The Muslim world was very upbeat about his election. Having said that, he must deliver, I think it is a tough job that he faces to deliver on all that he has been talking, he said, adding, " Muslims expect the United States to play a very fair role, an impartial role to deliver justice to the Islamic world."
