PESHAWAR: Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Tuesday that his party's focus was on resolving problems facing the country and not indulging in a political fight with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Zardari was talking to reporters after visiting the residence of MNA Ghulam Ahmed Bilour, where he offered condolences over the death of the latter's wife.

Former Chief Minister of Sindh Qaim Ali Shah, Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Khurshid Shah, PPP's Punjab chapter president Qamar Zaman Kaira also accompanied Zardari.

"Pakhtuns have always supported PPP. We will continue to visit cities of KP," he said. To a question, the former president said that during his tenure, he had paid more visits to China than PM Nawaz.

"I have seen no change in KP during my five-day visit to Peshawar," he said while criticising the PTI.

"I have a long association with KP and Peshawar. Ghulam Ahmed Bilour has been a friend of my father," Zardari said. "I have learned a lot about politics from Bilour. I have been encouraged by the warm reception I got from my Pakhtun brothers," he said.

Later, Zardari also met parents of the martyrs of Army Public School (APS) attack.

Earlier on Monday, he had addressed the Grand FATA Jirga. While addressing the tribal elders, he had said that the rulers would face tough times if they did not help the people.
