President Asif Ali Zardari and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain Monday held a meeting here to iron out issues threatening their partnership in the ruling coalition.

According to sources both the leaders hashed out various issues including current political and economic affairs of the country.

Earlier President Zardari flew to London for a day as sources said the issue of Dr Zulfiqar Mirza’s possible reinstatement was the main bone of contention between the two sides.

President Zardari, accompanied by his son Bilawal and Interior Minister Rehman Malik, arrived here in the afternoon after being hurriedly called to London to facilitate the meetings between the two sides.

Sources said that Rehman Malik would discuss with the MQM leadership the key points of the meetings before briefing the president on the agenda.
