London, Dec 16 (ANI): Pakistan's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK) Wajid Shamsul Hassan has said that President Asif Ali Zardari is "fit and will return to work next week."
"President Zardari is now recovering and once he gets a clearance by doctors he will resume his duties. After all, he is a human being and can fall sick, but unfortunately the media in Pakistan has been floating stories," The Express Tribune quoted Hassan, as saying.
Earlier on Wednesday, the president was discharged from the hospital and moved to his residence in Dubai.nterior Minister Rehman Malik reportedly met Zardari in Dubai and briefed him about the current security situation in Pakistan.
Earlier, sources close to Zardari had denied media reports about him resigning on account of ill health, claiming that he was expected to return after routine medical checkup.
The news came after a US magazine claimed that Zardari was under extreme pressure over the Memo Gate scandal and had been hospitalised in Dubai for medical checkups, complaining of heart troubles. (ANI)
