The Foreign Ministers are expected to meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York on Sep 26.
"Frankly speaking, I am not expecting any major breakthrough (during the meeting with Krishna on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York). India's mindset is evident. I am not too optimistic and I do not think any major breakthrough is possible," he said.
"I have already said that we want the situation to take a turn for the better. But we should not be too optimistic as there are lots of challenges," Qureshi told reporters.
Qureshi said he would approach the meeting with Krishna in New York "with positive mind" in the hope of "a constructive engagement. I will clearly spell out Pakistan's views before them. I will present the reality whether anyone likes it or not."
