Pakistan's newly-elected Prime Minister Imran Khan had earlier said that his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government favoured good relations with India and wanted to see leaders of the two countries to sit across the table and resolve all disputes, including Kashmir.

"I can only say we stand by our readout", spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters on Thursday, according to Reuters.

"There was no mention at all in the conversation about terrorists operating in Pakistan", Faisal wrote in a tweet.

Pompeo is due to visit Pakistan early next month and Qureshi said he looks forward to the early engagement and interaction with his USA counterpart for regional peace and stability, saying he believed they "will prove beneficial".

"Contributions to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund and the Chief Minister's Relief Fund from NRIs, PIOs and worldwide entities such as foundations would, however, be welcome".

"We don't want to land on the FATF's black list because it would have a negative impact on Pakistan", he said.

"I am not talking about a revolution in our relation but just suggesting that we should hold talks and don't think if we would make progress or not", he said, adding that an "enabling environment" should be created.

He said that in his "opinion there is no other option, (but resuming talks)".

The Pakistani foreign minister said Pakistan's "strained ties" with the US have seen highs and lows and that the new government is determined to work to improve the relationship.

The Prime Minister said this during telephonic conversation with US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo.

Answering another question, he said that Kashmir was still the core issue between Pakistan and India. He said that oversees Pakistanis were our great asset and they should create a suitable environment and highlight soft image of Pakistan at global level.

Qureshi urged media to play effective role in image and narrative building of the country.

Regarding austerity drive of Prime Minister Imran Khan, he said that the foreign minister would not stay in 5-star hotels during his visits overseas and would prefer to stay in Pakistani missions.
