Lahore, Apr.14 (ANI): Afghan President Hamid Karzai has agreed to meet the UN commission probing the death of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto following a request from President Asif Ali Zardari.

According to a private television channel, Karzai would meet members of the commission in Kabul before April 25.

Sources said that Zardari has also requested former US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to help the probing team with their investigations.

It may be noted that the commission's report was due to be published last month, but the UN delayed the process following Zardari's request.

According to the sources, Zardari has named former Rice, Karzai, Saudi Arabia's intelligence chief Muqran bin Abdul Aziz and the intelligence chief of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as those who had warned about Benazir's murder in advance.

They said that Zardari had asked the UN inquiry commission to meet these four persons before submitting its final report on the December 2007 gun and bomb attack, which killed Benazir.

Sources said Zardari believes that information to be shared by these four personalities might help the inquiry commission to identify the real killers.

The three-member UN commission, headed by Chilean Ambassador Heraldo Munoz, was set up following a request by the Pakistani government to probe attack on Benazir, and began its work in July 009. (ANI)
