Addressing a public gathering, Qureshi said Pakistan had refused to bow to pressure after the 26/11 attacks.
Qureshi said, "India, which had talked of snapping ties with Pakistan, has come forward and sought talks. We did not bow to their pressure."
He claimed that India wanted to isolate Pakistan diplomatically but had failed due to effective diplomatic efforts made by Islamabad.
"We will go ahead with the talks because we have a strong case on various issues, such as Kashmir and the water dispute," he said.
Recently, Qureshi had complained about India's reluctance to talk and had even threatened to go the United Nation to force India.
