KARACHI (Reuters) - Former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto said on Tuesday she will not meet or negotiate with President Pervez Musharraf, after the military ruler invoked emergency rule at the weekend.
“No and nor do I intend to meet Musharraf,” she told reporters at Karachi airport before boarding a flight to Islamabad, when asked if she will negotiate to join a caretaker government.
Bhutto, leader of the largest opposition party, the Pakistan Peoples’ Party, said she still intended to address a public meeting in Rawalpindi, next door to Islamabad on Nov. 9.
Bhutto said she was going to Islamabad for a meeting of the opposition Alliance for Restoration of Democracy.
