Speaking to a TV news channel, Qureshi said, "We are facing a challenge but we cannot face it alone. We need a regional approach. India is an important regional player and it has to act responsibly."
"It (India) has to be positive. You don't have to be negative. Now if you're negative, you're not helping your case. India says we will not talk. There will come a stage when Pakistan says so be it," Qureshi said.
"They are still sticking to the position that Pakistan needs to do more. If you continue to harp on the same thing you will merely vitiate the atmosphere. I want to improve relations between the two countries. I really want to see progress and normalisation (of relations)," he said.
"In New York, I had shared with Krishna a road map and the challenges that the region faces," Qureshi said pointing out that he was still waiting for the response from his Indian counterpart.
The Pakistani minister said India's dossiers containing evidence against alleged Mumbai terror attacks plotters were not good enough.
"You have to differentiate between evidence which is shared between friends and colleagues diplomatically and evidence which is legally tenable--and if you don"t differentiate the courts of law will throw out your case," he added.
