Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has no plans to suspend his campaign and support Democratic presidential presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton, Reuters reported.

Sanders is set to give remarks from Burlington, Vermont Thursday night to discuss strategies that enable him to policy goals, a campaign spokesman said.

According to the campaign, Sanders met with Clinton in Washington Tuesday night at the Capitol Hilton.

“Sanders congratulated Secretary Clinton on the campaign she has run and said he appreciated her strong commitment to stopping Trump in the general election,” Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said in a statement.

“The two discussed a variety of issues where they are seeking common ground: substantially raising the minimum wage; real campaign finance reform; making health care universal and accessible; making college affordable and reducing student debt.”

“Sanders and Clinton agreed to continue working to develop a progressive agenda that addresses the needs of working families and the middle class and adopting a progressive platform for the Democratic National Convention.”

The meeting also included Sen. Sanders’ wife Jane, Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook.
