Pakistani's two leading political leaders said Sunday that they had agreed to form a coalition government with the Prime Minister from the Pakistan People's Party (PPP).

"We undertake to form a coalition together for Pakistan, as the people of Pakistan had given mandate to the democratic forces on February 18," said Nawaz Sharif, leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) at the news conference after his meeting with PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari at the scenic town of Murree in eastern Pakistan.

"We have fruitful meeting today, we are at the verge of making history, it was the desire of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto," Zardari, former PM Benazir Bhutto's widower, told a joint news conference with Sharif.
