Lahore, Sep. 28 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has said that the Muslim world would not accept America's involvement in the Middle East peace process because the US has always been pro-Israel.

Musharraf was referring to a recent tripartite meeting that US President Barack Obama hosted with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in New York.

The Daily Times quoted Musharraf a saying that Israel would object to the inclusion of a non-Arab country in the Middle East peace process.

A joint international forum, consisting of Pakistan, Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia and the European Union, could help push the process between the Palestinians and the Israelis in the right direction, he added.

Furthermore, Musharraf said that a give-and-take policy was best for any successful peace deal, adding that peace was necessary for the development of any society.

Speaking about his political decline, he said that his downfall began in 2007 when he submitted a reference against Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry before the Supreme Judicial Council. But it was legitimate and constitutional, he pointed out. (ANI)
