Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Senator Farhatullah Babar on Monday rubbished reports that former president Asif Ali Zardari will be hosting a talk show as a political analyst on Bol TV reported.
However, Senator Babar said the former president had only been interviewed by the TV channel, “like he is by different media houses,” BBC Urdu said.
During the ‘first episode’ of the show, aired by Bol TV on March 19, Zardari had appeared live from Bilawal House in Karachi, responding to questions posed by the anchor.
The former president spoke of the challenges Pakistan is facing in the international arena and regretted that the government had failed to appoint a foreign minister.
“If the government does not have a foreign minister, then, I believe, there is no concern for Pakistan’s position on the the global stage and the numerous challenges the country is facing,” Zardari said.
During the episode, the former president also spoke on Pak-US relations and said that “if someone takes the responsibility to hold dialogue with [America],” the relations can be improved.
