Philadelphia, Sep 21 (ANI): Former President Pervez Musharraf has said Pakistan would never allow foreign troops on its territory.

Addressing a Pakistani doctors organization in Philadelphia, Musharraf said that Pakistan's defence is strong and no force can challenge the sovereignty of the country.

He also said that he will return to Pakistan under pleasant conditions.

Musharraf added that he will not retaliate against those who are demanding to try him under Article 6 of the Pakistan Constitution.

The former President also ruled out the possibility of another coup.

Earlier, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had accused the United States and Britain of playing a part in facilitating a 'safe exit' for Musharraf in 2008.

PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, while moving a privilege motion against President Asif Ali Zardari in the National Assembly, asked Zardari to disclose the full terms and the role played by Britain, the US and other countries in the covert deal, which allowed Musharraf allay high treason charges against him.

"The British and the Americans have no right to dictate terms on our internal affairs. When you involve elements from Britain to interfere, it compromises Pakistan"s sovereignty," Khan said. (ANI)
