President Asif Ali Zardari earlier on Monday expressed full confidence in the country’s beleaguered prime minister, who is scrambling to prevent his government from falling after a key coalition partner quit.

“We see this as an internal Pakistani political issue, and we do not think it would be appropriate for the US to comment,” the US official said when asked how concerned Washington was about the coalition crisis and whether it might affect the Obama administration’s Afghanistan-Pakistan strategy.
