Islamabad, Sep. 28 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has refuted claims made by President Asif Ali Zardari that Musharraf quit the government as part of a secret deal facilitated by international and local' guarantors.
"I neither quit the government nor left the country on any deal," The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying.
Earlier, Zardari had said that Musharraf's exit was orchestrated under a "guaranteed" deal.
"All international and local powers, which have stakes in the region, were guarantors of General Pervez Musharraf's negotiated resignation," Zardari had told reporters during an Iftar party.
Speaking about Benazir Bhutto's homecoming, Musharraf said he allowed Bhutto to return home since as no corruption charges were proved against her.
He also claimed that he warned Bhutto not to return home for the time being, as there were terror threats to her life; but, she came to Pakistan and the extremists succeeded in assassinating her. (ANI)
