Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Monday that his party will not quit the coalition led by the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) although it is not satisfied with what the PPP has done.

"PPP did not fulfill promises especially on deposed judges' issue, but we do not want to quit the coalition," said the chief of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) at a press conference in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore. "We want to keep the coalition intact."

Sharif is scheduled to meet with PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari Tuesday in Islamabad.

"Our Islamabad meeting tomorrow should be meaningful and resultful," he said.

Sharif claimed that the PPP was not taking keen interest in resolving deposed judges. He also blamed the PPP for current price hike.

Sharif disclosed that the PPP did not take PML-N in confidence for launching operation against militants in the northwestern Pakistani district of Swat.
