Islamabad , Jan 14 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has said that the world should be considerate about Pakistan and its people rather than its nuclear assets.

I think the whole of Pakistan , the nation of 175 million people, needs to be looked after. We need to be assisted, we need to be helped, and we need to be cared for. I am worried for Pakistan , therefore we have been fighting for democracy, Zardari said.

He said there are some elements in the country that does not want February elections in the country and want them to postpone.

He said that he is in constant touch with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawazs (PML-N) chairman Nawaz Sharif about the political developments in the country.
