KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday assured President Asif Ali Zardari that his party will continue supporting the PPP-led coalition government, DawnNews reported.

Both the leaders declared that continuance of the democratic system was vital for the stability of Pakistan.

Ruling out reports of parting ways from the government, Hussain assured the president that his party is still a coalition partner of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

He said the MQM is a democratic party and believes in democratic process in the country.

Both the leaders agreed that resolving issues through mutual understanding was need of the hour.

Meanwhile, the MQM chief also extended an apology to the journalists’ community for using inappropriate language against them in a public speech.

In a statement issued by the party, Hussain said that he extends unconditional apology to journalists and anchor persons if they were offended by any of his words. “I respect the journalist community and will always respect them…I take my words back unconditionally if they offended anyone,” said the statement.
