Musharraf leaving to meet Saudi Monarch (and Nawaz?)

"(AGI) - Riyadh, 19 November - Pakistani President, Pervez Musharraf, will be in Saudi Arabia tomorrow to meet with King Abdullah and he may hold talks with former Pakistani premier and leader of the opposition, Nawaz Sharif, who lives in exile in the Kingdom. The visit has been announced in Riyadh by the official Saudi news agency SPA. This will be Musharraf's first visit abroad since he announced the state of emergency on 3 November. In the Pakistani media, a possible encounter between Musharraf and Sharif was announced with Saudi mediation. Collaborators of the ex-premier have announced that the only purpose for the meeting could be the finalization of a strategy for the unconditional political retreat of the Pakistani president. Sharif has indicated that he has already refused the request to meet Musharraf twice."

Nawaz Sharif must meet Musharaf in the interst of political development in Pakistan, in the interest of restoration of constitution/judiciary, media & political stability. His presence on Pakistan political scene is vital for Pakistan's stability.

I believe NS should not meet the General in the best interest of the nation. General is under immense pressure from within and without. Any gesture of reconciliation to this oppressive regime will only embolden it. But then NS is such a wimp. Honestly speaking I do not expect any act of fortitude from him. In fact, he may well replace Benazir to spearhead the so called "national reconciliation" campaign. I salute Imran for his resolute struggle. He has shown us the way to defy the junta. He is the only real threat to Mush and co. It's time for us to wake up and support him whole heartedly.
