Lahore, Sep 16: Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf blamed Indian media for highlighting a 'non issue' like his comments on misuse of US military aid and its usage against India.

Dr Nasim Ashraf, one of Musharraf's close friends, told a private television channel that the former President has categorically denied misuse of any US military aid during his regime.

Ashraf said it was wrong to say that the Pakistan Army had violated the agreement regarding the equipments supplied by the US.

"If a unit stationed in Waziristan moved to Kashmir, the equipment would move with it, which was not a violation of the agreement," The Daily Times quoted Ashraf, as saying.

Responding to a question he said Musharraf would return to Pakistan as soon as his lecture tour is finished.

Musharraf in an interview to a Pakistan channel admitted that he had violated the rules governing the use of the military aid, but justified his action, saying he 'acted in the best interest of Pakistan.'
