Pakistan's Nawaz Sharif Says Resolving Judiciary Key to Country's Problems

Lawyers in Pakistan continued their protest marches this week amid an effort to press the government to reinstate the judges replaced last year by President Pervez Musharraf. After weeks of negotiations with his fellow coalition leader Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari says despite differences, he remains confident the two parties will reach agreement. And some Pakistanis now living in the U.S. say the new government cannot succeed without independent judges. VOA's Ravi Khanna reports President Musharraf, so far, has made no public comment.
