 Husain Haqqani offers to resign

 Updated at: 0142 PST,  Thursday, November 17, 2011
Husain Haqqani offers to resign WASHINGTON: Pakistani Ambassador to United States Husain Haqqani has written a letter to President Asif Ali Zardari and offered to resign from his post over the issue of memo, which was reportedly sent to Mike Mullen.

Manzoor Ijaz alleged in a column in the Financial Times last month that a senior Pakistani diplomat asked for assistance in getting a memo from Zardari to Admiral Mike Mullen.

"I serve at the pleasure of the president of Pakistan and the prime minster of Pakistan. And I have communicated my willingness to resign or participate in any inquiry that brings to an end the vilification against the democratic government of Pakistan currently being undertaken by some elements in the country," said Husain Haqqani.

Officials in the Pakistani government were not immediately available to say whether Haqqani's offer had been accepted.

"I have not been named so far as having done anything wrong by anyone except through innuendo. No memo of the kind being discussed in the media was drafted or delivered by me," Haqqani said.

"I should like to add that since I was appointed ambassador in 2008, some people have consistently vilified me as having been involved in undermining the Pakistani armed forces. Which I have never done", he added. (Reuters)
