Pakistan's exiled former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Wednesday he was ready to work with another former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, against the military rule of President Pervez Musharraf.

Bhutto has been trying to forge an opposition alliance after she called on Musharraf to give up power and has spoken to leaders from Sharif's party about a coalition.

"We are ready to set aside our differences with the People's Party and work for the return of democratic rule," Sharif told Reuters by telephone from Saudi Arabia, referring to Bhutto's party.
