“It is also true that President Musharraf said that he would take off his uniform and that would be an important step,” she added.
Earlier today, Washington suspended its annual defence talks with Islamabad because of the prevailing political situation in that country.
Eric Edelman, the Under Secretary of Defence for Policy, was supposed to lead a US team for talks beginning on Tuesday, but he will not go until political conditions improve, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell told reporters.
Morrell is travelling with US Defence Secretary Robert Gates, who also on Monday called for Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf to return his country to a constitutional form of government. (ANI)
