Responding to External Affairs Minister S M Krishna's invitation to visit India, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has made it clear that he would accept it if the talks are to be "result-oriented", covering all issues of importance, including Kashmir.

He stressed the need for "positive and constructive approach" after his July 15 talks with Krishna ended on a bitter note, particularly on Kashmir and terrorism emanating from Pakistan.

"I am grateful to Mr Krishna for inviting me to visit New Delhi. The visit has to be purposeful and result oriented during which all issues of mutual concern should be discussed," Qureshi told the news agency in an email interview.

He was responding when asked about Krishna's invitation to visit India for talks which is still under consideration of Pakistan.
