Islamabad, Sep 10: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said that al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is dead.
In an interview to BBC, Zardari said, "It seems as if Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is no longer alive."
He also asserted that Pakistan government was fighting the militants with determination, but these efforts were hampered by lack of resources.
"If the world's armies and the world's budgets cannot look after (the Afghan) side of the border, give me more time and give me the resources that I need and we will deliver," he said.
His remarks came after US claimed that Osama is alive and is hiding in Pakistan's restive tribal areas bordering Afghanistan
