The meeting was headed by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and attended by other prominent figures, including Marriyum Aurangzeb, the Information Minister; Qamar Zaman Kaira, the Adviser to the Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs; and Hina Rabbani Khar, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs.

During the meeting, there was a comprehensive briefing on Pakistan’s potential participation in the upcoming World Cup.

Zaka Ashraf, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee, also expressed his viewpoint on the matter.

According to sources, the committee decided to raise the security matter regarding Pakistan team in India with the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Bhutto stated that considering the current situation in India, no compromise will be made on the security of the national cricket team, and the Pakistan cricket team will only be allowed to participate in the mega event if security guarantees are provided by ICC.

Sources further added that a security delegation will be sent to India in the third week of August. The delegation will be responsible for assessing the security arrangements at the venues designated to host Pakistan matches.

Based on the security clearance provided by the delegation, the final decision on Pakistan’s participation in the World Cup will be made.

Pakistani authorities will maintain communication with India and the International Cricket Council (ICC) throughout the process.
