Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari has said that Pakistan army and the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) are not involved in politics.

In an exclusive interview with Geo News senior analyst Hamid Mir, Asif Ali Zardari said that it would be premature to say that President Musharraf might have misappropriated the US aid given to Pakistan in war against terror. PPP co-chairman said that his statement in this regard was stated out of context by British newspaper.

As regards Dr. Aafia Siddiqui's case, Zardari said that her trial is an acid test of the US Judicial system. Asif Ali Zardari admitted that he was in the wrong by not taking Muttahida Qaumi Movement Chief, Altaf Hussain into confidence over the issue of President's impeachment. He said that new President would abolish 58-2(b).
