London, Aug.18 (ANI): Outgoing Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf may think of setting up house abroad after a few weeks, the Financial Times reports.
According to the paper, it is not clear as yet whether Mr Musharraf will remain in Pakistan or go into exile, as has been widely speculated.
It quoted a senior government official with some knowledge of Musharrafs recent background discussions with ruling politicians, as saying that the president may spend the next few weeks at his farm house in Islamabad.
It was likely that Musharraf would eventually go into exile because it was unlikely to provide now that the former president would be provided with the same security that he got when he was the president.
Turkey, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, the UK and the US have been mentioned as possible destinations for Musharraf, said the paper. (ANI)
