Islamabad: Conspiracies are hatched against the government everyday and "we will foil all of them", Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has said. Zardari said the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government could change the destiny of the country if the bureaucracy cooperates and allows it to work during its term.

He said the PPP was not dependent on votes. He was addressing a gathering in Karachi Friday, Geo TV reported. Reflecting on the country's economy, the president said Pakistan required trade not aid.
