President Asif Ali Zardari has returned to Karachi on Tuesday after his much criticised visit to England and France.

The president has responded to criticism over his trip to the UK by saying that it was important to inform the world about Pakistan's sacrifices made in the war on terror and that London is vital for generating global political and humanitarian awareness.

"Nobody should tell us how to fight war against terrorism," he said, and added that the international community must boost political, economic and military support.

"No one can match our resolve and sacrifices in war on terror", the president added.

He returned home today from official foreign visits to a chorus of criticism over his government's response to the region's worst flooding in 80 years.

In an article appearing in the influential 'The Financial Times', the president asserted that Pakistan's sacrifices must be told to the world.
