Musharraf seek permission to offer condolences to Saudi royal family

ISLAMABAD: Former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf requested the government on Friday to allow him to visit Saudi Arabia to offer condolences to the Saudi royal family over King Shah Abdullah’s death.
In his plea, the former military ruler said he had maintained good relations with Abdullah, and the king’s demise had “saddened” him.Saudi King Abdullah had passed away early on Friday.
The All Pakistan Muslim League’s (APML) spokesperson told that Musharraf has filed an application requesting the Interior Ministry to allow him to travel. The ministry has not responded to Musharraf’s request as yet.
Musharraf has been staying with his daughter in Karachi where he traveled for tests at a navy-run hospital in April last year. He has been banned from leaving the country as the government has put his name in the exit control list.
