Mustafa Khokhar, minister in charge of human rights, said that contrary to media reports there was “no question of any resignation” by Zardari, who is under pressure over a scandal that saw his ambassador to the US step down.

“He had a minor heart attack on Tuesday. He flew to Dubai where he had an angioplasty. He’s in good health now. He will come back tomorrow. There’s no question of any resignation,” on Wednesday.

State media said Zardari was accompanied by his physicians and personal staff, and that the tests were routine, linked to a “previously diagnosed cardiovascular condition”.
