Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf’s Interview


Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf says in an interview with Newsweek International‘s Fareed Zakaria he is “totally against” a U.S. military operation in Pakistan.

He adds: “We will ask for assistance from outsiders. They won’t impose their will on us.”

In an essay that ran beside the interview, Zakaria says Musharraf’s efforts to cling to power have emboldened militants in Pakistan and have encouraged Pakistanis to rally against him, rather than extremists.
