Islamabad - The Advisor to the US President on National Security Affairs, Stephen Hadley, called his Pakistani counterpart, Secretary to the National Security Council Tariq Aziz the other night, according to well-placed sources in the Presidency. Hadley assured Aziz, who is also a close confidant of the President, of the US government's support to President Pervez Musharraf. He appreciated the free and fair elections that took place on the 18th of February and the fact that a democratically elected government had come into being. The two also discussed security issues, including the series of peace deals between the government and the Islamist militants in the tribal areas. The development comes in the backdrop of the suspicion coming from some quarters that the US is going to sever its support to the beleaguered President in the wake of the transformed political scenario of the country. The meeting between the President and the Chief of Army Staff, General Ashafaq Pervez Kayani, which inspired much speculation about differences between the Army and the Presidency, took place after the telephonic conversation between Hadley and Aziz, possibly moderating the meeting.
