No meeting with Qureshi planned: Krishna

"Well it is not on the cards," Krishna told reporters when asked whether he would meet his Pakistani counterpart here. However, he underlined that the talks with Pakistan would be pursued.

"How can you nullify India-Pak talks," Krishna told the Indian media at the Asia Society, where he delivered a speech on India. "I have said in my speech that I have invited Foreign Minister Qureshi to come to India and he has very graciously accepted my invitation," he said.

"I am looking forward to his visit to India so that we can take up from where he left in Islamabad," he said. His comments came as Qureshi said "some suggestions" had been sent to India to take the talks forward and he was now awaiting its response.

"The talks can take place immediately if a positive response is received," Qureshi said, adding that any meeting needs to be "meaningful" and should produce results.
