The offer was made to Bhutto, when she met UAE President Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi recently.

PPP leader Makhdoom Amin Fahim told reporters that Benazir had requested a meeting with President Nahyan to thank him for the facilities provided to her during her stay in the UAE.

Fahim said that Bhutto had thanked the UAE ruler for the offer and added that she would travel by a chartered plane.

However, sources said that Bhutto has decided to honour the offer and would travel to Karachi on the plane offered by President Nahyan.

The fathers of both the leaders, late President N Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, had developed very close friendship when the latter was Prime Minister of Pakistan, The Nation quoted sources, as saying.

This relationship contributed towards the successful reconciliation bid between Benazir Bhutto and Musharraf, when both met in Abu Dhabi, they added. (ANI)
