Kicking off the celebrations of the nation’s 64th year of independence, President Asif Ali Zardari offered a message of optimism and hope in a televised late night address to the nation on Saturday.

“We will rise from the ashes and build a strong Pakistan,” in a speech delivered in Islamabad that mixed a heavy dose of realism about current challenges with an optimistic outlook on the country’s future.

The President said that the Pakistan Peoples Party is determined to pursue the objective of taking Pakistan onto the path of progress and democracy, and added that he is aware of the problems faced by the country currently.

He said that Pakistan has the capacity to resolve all its matters and will survive on its own, but it will take time to resolve issues that have been created in more than 60 years.

He said that more could have been achieved if the democratic process had not been repeatedly subverted and the constitution abrogated by dictators.
