    Asif Ali Zardari , who is undergoing treatment in Dubai for heart complications , would need two weeks of rest before returning home, Pakistan premier Yousaf Raza Gilani has said, dismissing rumours about a "quiet coup" and the president's offer to resign.

    Gilani also insisted that 56-year-old Zardari had not suffered a stroke and said the president's condition was improving rapidly.

    Medical tests of Zardari were clear, but he would need two weeks' rest before returning home, Gilani told BBC in an interview on Sunday . He further denied that the president had written a letter of resignation, as claimed by a source in Dubai.

    "Why should he write (a letter of resignation)?" asked Gilani. He has the backing and support of the entire parliament." Dismissing speculation about a "quiet coup" , the PM said, "Rumours are rumours."

    Despite denials from officials , Islamabad continues to be abuzz with rumours that Zardari had suffered a "minor heart attack" . Gulf News daily had quoted an unnamed presidential aide as saying that Zardari may not return to Pakistan for weeks.

    Other leaders of the Pakistan People's Party-led government have stepped in to defend the president, insisting that

    Zardari's condition has improved and that he will return to the country soon.
