Washington D.C. [U.S.A] Jan 11 (ANI) Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and disgraced former lawmaker Anthony Weiner have withdrawn their pending divorce case.

"Abedin was scheduled to appear in Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday afternoon for a compliance conference in their contested divorce. Instead, one of her attorneys submitted paperwork signed by both parties agreeing to end the case," said a court source, reported Fox News.

The judge then announced the case was "discontinued," the source added.

Charles Miller, Abedin's attorney, in a statement, said: "In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have decided to attempt to reach a settlement swiftly and privately."

The Clinton aide had filed for a split in May 2017 after her husband "pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor".

Weiner was sentenced to prison for 21 months in November last year. (ANI)
