The country said that its decision shows its ‘constructive and responsible’ approach vis-à-vis India’s ‘intransigent’ attitude, “as the latter had refused to send its cricket team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup.”
“We expect that the full safety and security of the Pakistan Cricket Team will be ensured during its visit to India,” it stated.
