Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that he got positive vibes from India and there was nothing to "disagree" between the two countries.
"Being a politician, I can read between the lines and I can tell you I got positive vibes, because my message was positive, my engagement was positive, my intentions are positive," Qureshi said.
"I have suggested a way forward, and I saw nothing in him (Krishna) where he could disagree with me," Qureshi said when asked about his meeting with India's External Affairs Minister S M Krishna in New York on September 27 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session.
Accompanied by their respective foreign secretaries and other top officials, the two ministers met for more than an hour in a New York hotel on September 27.
The two sides had then described the meeting as positive, but did not make any further commitment of additional talks.
Krishna had said the two sides have agreed on a road map and now it is up to Pakistan to take it forward.
Describing his meeting with Krishna as "positive" and "constructive", Qureshi said that the Indian foreign minister was "in total agreement with my message".
"Obviously, he's going to go back and consult with the leadership in Delhi and we'll take it from there," Qureshi told reporters at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department in a joint press availability with the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
