In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we take a look at the latest from Washington DC about Ambassador Husain Haqqani’s possible resignation and return to Pakistan.
Huma Imtiaz, Express Tribune‘s correspondent based in Washington DC discusses the speculation surrounding who will replace Haqqani if the post were to free up.
Imtiaz says officially the US State Department is unlikely to comment on this story, citing that it is an internal issue for Pakistan.
Pakistan’s ambassador to Washington has offered to resign after reports that his boss, President Asif Ali Zardari, asked Washington for help to stave off a military takeover.
A Pakistani businessman alleged in a column in the Financial Timeslast month that a senior Pakistani diplomat asked for assistance in getting a message from Zardari to Admiral Mike Mullen, at the time chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.
