Pervez Musharraf Islamabad, Apr. 20 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General (r) Pervez Musharraf has said that the United States should not attach any preconditions to its anti-terror aid to Pakistan.

The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying that the armed forces and the Pakistan Government should jointly devise a strategy to fight terrorists in the country.

Speaking on the Swat peace deal with the Taliban, he said the deal would be good for the country only if it brought peace and justice, but it could not be supported if it infringed the sovereignty of the state.

Interacting with press before leaving for Saudi Arabia, Musharraf urged the nation, especially the media, to focus on the current challenges facing the country.

He said he was going to Saudi Arabia on a special invitation by the Saudi king, Shah Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz.

On the controversial Lal Masjid Operation, Musharraf rejected the claims that children and women were among the 94 people killed in the 2007 Lal Masjid operation in Islamabad. (ANI)
