Still hopeful

June 25 (Reuters): Pervez Musharraf said today that he was still hopeful of getting F-16 fighter planes from the US even though he could not secure a deal yesterday.

Musharraf told CNN that he had not expected a breakthrough on the F-16s. It “may be a step-by-step progress to the final, ultimate procurement of F-16s”, Musharraf said.

Asked whether he had been satisfied with his meeting with George W. Bush, he said: “Yes indeed, I was quite satisfied.”
