WASHINGTON: The United States rebuffed reports that Pakistan's former ruler Pervez Musharraf had sought a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over his return to Pakistan, DawnNews reported on Friday.

State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said that Musharraf was not asking for favours from US officials to avoid arrest in Pakistan.

Musharraf had announced in a telephonic address to a public gathering in Karachi that he was planning to return to Pakistan in the last week of January.

Nuland also said that there were reports that Pakistan had decided to restore Nato supply lines from Pakistan to Afghanistan.

She, however, said that the US was still waiting for an official confirmation on the subject and a formal announcement from the Pakistani side.
