Brussels, Feb 19: Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that India's decision to resume talks was a positive step.

Addressing a press conference, Qureshi said, "We are ready for meaningful engagement with India."

He was speaking at the sidelines of an international security conference here.

Qureshi said, "We would want to discuss all issues that have strained our relations over the years."

He further said, "If we do not recognise those issues then the dialogue will not be meaningful."

Qureshi noted that he is sending the Pakistani foreign secretary to New Delhi on Feb 25 for the talks.

He also said that the water issue was a "very sensitive issue" for Pakistan and he intends to raise the matter with India very soon.

India had suspended the composite dialogue process with Pakistan after the Nov 26, 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai.
