ISLAMABAD, Dec 7 (APP): The President House on Wednesday dismissed as “speculative” and “untrue” reports about President Asif Ali Zardari’s health in media and said he was in Dubai for regular medical checks. Spokesperson Farhatullah Babar told APP that President Zardari was is in a Dubai hospital for medical tests and check-up as planned. He said “reports in some sections of the media speculating on President’s activities and engagements are speculative, imaginary and untrue.”
President Zardari had gone to Dubai Tuesday evening to visit his children and undergo some medical tests. The President was accompanied by his physicians and a limited personal staff, a statement from President House said.
 The statement quoted President’s personal physician Col Salman as saying that the medical tests were of routine nature and linked to a previously diagnosed cardiovascular condition.
