Mansoor Ijaz Steps Back From One Of His Claims
Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz has stepped back from one of his claims and said that President Asif Ali Zardari was not aware of the controversial memo sent to US military chief Mike Mullen.It was reported Monday.
Mansoor Ijaz has rejected any such reports claiming that there was some understanding between President Zardari and Ambassador Husain Haqqani regarding the document sent to Mike Mullen.
Ijaz claimed that the President might have spoken to Husain Haqqani about the pressure on him after the May raid, hence asking the latter to help him out in this regard.
The businessman rejected the idea of any missing links in the memo chain.
Earlier in his article published in the Financial Times, Ijaz had claimed that he had drafted and delivered a memo to Admiral Mullen with the help of a top diplomat on President Zardari’s instructions.
