Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari in an interview denied being in 'exile' and said he would return to Pakistan within the next few weeks, Geo reported.

Speaking to journalist Hamid Mir during Geo News' 'Capital Talk', the PPP leader who has divided his time between London and Dubai since June 2015, said he would return to the country soon, Geo reported. The interview will air on Monday at 8:05pm.

The PPP leader abruptly left the country last year after a hard-hitting speech where he lashed out at the military establishment for overstepping its domain.

The former president had said that army chiefs come and go every three years, but the political leadership is here to stay.
