Pervez Musharraf Islamabad, Sept 18 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf had all intentions of handing over nuclear scientist Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan to the United States, former Prime Minister Mir Zafar Ullah Khan Jamali has disclosed.

Jamali said that he had summoned a cabinet meeting over the issue of the nuclear scientist and clearly told Musharraf that though he might be the president, but the government would not hand over Khan to the US, The Nation reports.

Upon the Cabinet’s refusal, Musharraf over-turned his government, he added.

Meanwhile, AQ Khan has endorsed Jamali’s statement, calling him gentle, honest and sombre.

He added that he knew the former prime minister as a patriotic and loyal person, and had never seen him cheating anyone.

Jamali’s disclosure was absolutely correct and Pervez Musharraf was a traitor who has sold out his own country, Dr. Khan claimed. (ANI)
