WASHINGTON: - The United States on Thursday called the moves by Pakistan's ruling coalition to impeach President Pervez Musharraf and to restore the deposed judges as "internal politics", hoping that any action in that regard would be consistent with the country's constitution. "We're closely watching developments in Pakistan," State Department Spokesman Gonzalo Gallegos said as he reaffirmed Washington's close ties with the democratically elected government of Pakistan. "We are aware of the reports -- we have consistently said the internal politics of Pakistan is an issue are for the Pakistani people to decide "our expectation is that any action will be consistent with the rule of law and the Pakistani constitution," he told the daily briefing. "We remain close allies in the war on terror and continue our close ties with the democratically elected government of Pakistan," he stated in reply to another question. Gallegos said it was the responsibility Pakistani leaders to decide on the way forward to succeed as a "democratic, modern and moderate country."
