Pakistan's former President General Pervez Musharraf was better than the current Pakistan government, National Security Advisor MK Narayanan said yesterday to Karan Thapar on his show Devil's Advocate.

Narayanan further went on to say that India had a better chance of resolving many issues when General Musharraf was at the helm of affairs.

When the weekly show, Devil's Advocate, host Karan Thapar further quizzed Narayanan on whether Pakistan has become more difficult or complicated country after Musharraf's resignation, the National Security Advisor Narayanan replied in an affirmative.

He said from India's point of view, he would say yes.

"I think despite the fact that Musharraf was seen as a military man and a president who probably came to power not necessarily though the route of formal elections, etc... I think as far as India was concerned, with regard to the questions we had on Kashmir, etc, it was possible to do business with him. And I think our Prime Minister's now very well worn statement, namely that 'I can do business with president Musharraf' is now widely recognised as being part of the truth," said Narayanan.
