Pak President Zardari visits Dubai for Medical Tests

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has left for Dubai to undergo some medical tests, which are linked to his previously diagnosed cardiovascular condition. He will also meet his children there.

Pakistani media reported that Zardari has moved to Dubai on Tuesday evening and the medical tests will be done as a part of routine. However, foreign media claimed that he may quit his post on an account of "ill health".

Even there is a rumour that Zardari had suffered a "minor heart attack" on Monday night and he flew to Dubai via an air ambulance.

A US magazine claimed that Zardari may undergo an angioplasty procedure on Wednesday. Earlier, Zardari had an angiography at a hospital in Britain and doctors had given him a clean bill of health in September.

It is reported that Zardari is under pressure over a scandal on memo that forced the Pakistani ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani to resign in November.

He had also planned to brief before a joint session of Pakistan’s parliament over the controversy of a memo to Washington that claimed that he had asked for help from the US fearing a military coup after the killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden on May 2.

Meanwhile, Zardari was "incoherent" when the US President Barack Obama clarified him over the Nato's air strike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers on November 26.
