Washington, Feb 25 : Democratic Senator Joseph Biden has said President Pervez Musharraf should make a "graceful exit" before he is forced out of power.

Biden, who heads the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was in Pakistan recently along with Senators John Kerry and Chuck Hagel to monitor the elections.

He dismissed reports that the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) defeat in elections is a setback for the US operations against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

"I firmly believe if opposition parties do not focus on old grudges, there's plenty in Pakistan and give him a graceful way to move, that will be exactly what the Telegraph of London reported, apparently," the Daily Times quoted Biden, as saying.
