Zardari begins career as political analyst on news channel

KARACHI: Former president and PPP’s co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari has now started his career as a political analyst on a weekly talk show on a news channel.

The channel announced on Twitter about the new show, Pakistan Khappay with president Asif Ali Zardari which was launched on March 19.

In the first episode of the show, Zardari appeared live from Karachi and responded to questions about current affairs, including Pakistan’s relations with its neighboring countries and the United States.

Speaking about the absence of a foreign minister, the former president said, “A country which does not have a foreign minister for four years, shows that the government does not care or understand the position Pakistan holds, and the challenges it faces when it comes to international politics.”

Upon being asked to comment on Pakistan’s relations with India and the ongoing tensions on the Pak-Afghan border, Zardari said, “I feel Nawaz Sharif thinks of one of the neighbours as his market, and neglects the other neighbour with which Pakistan shares cultural values.”

Commenting on Pakistan’s relations with the US, Zardari said, President Donald Trump comes from a business background and country can have much better relations if someone takes responsibility to hold dialogue with him.

Earlier this month, former president and retired army chief, Pervez Musharraf, launched career as a political analyst on a weekly talk shows.
