CWG security review: Pakistan absent

Pakistan, skipped the two-day International Security Liaison Conference which was convened to address security-related concerns of the participating nations.

Though Pakistan was expected to send its representative to the conference, which ended on Thursday, it preferred to stay out. Around 76 delegates (security professionals and representatives from high commissions) from other Commonwealth countries attended the meet.

India's Home secretary G K Pillai said though Pakistan did not attend, the government hoped they would participate in future meetings and the Games in full strength.

Copies of the presentation, made by Delhi Police over security preparedness during the two-day conference, will be sent to all countries including Pakistan which is also expected to appoint a nodal officer to coordinate with the International Security Liaison Group (ISLG) on security arrangements for Delhi Commonwealth Games 2010.

Stating that "there is no threat at all as of today" to the Commonwealth Games, the home secretary said the representatives of participating nations who attended the conference were fully satisfied with the security preparedness.

A complete presentation would be given to media on security and traffic some time next week.
