Pakistan president to raise Cameron's 'uncalled for remarks'

2nd August 2010, Comments 0 comments

President Asif Ali Zardari will address British Prime Minister David Cameron's "uncalled for" criticism of Pakistan's stance on terrorism at a meeting this week, the Pakistani leader's spokesman said.

Zardari was in Paris on Monday for talks with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and was due to travel the next day to Britain, whose leader last week accused elements within Pakistan of backing Afghan Taliban extremists.

In a statement issued after the talks, Zardari's office said he told Sarkozy it was "unfortunate if some people continued to express doubts and misgivings about our will and determination to fight the militants to the finish."
