NEW DELHI: India will host the 2010 Commonwealth Games and cricket's World Cup in 2011 as scheduled despite security concerns after the Mumbai terror attacks.
This was told by Olympic Association secretary-general Randhir Singh here on Tuesday.
He said there was no threat to the Commonwealth Games to be held in New Delhi from October 3-14, 2010.
"What happened in Mumbai is tragic, but sport must go on and we are determined to host the Games," Singh, a member of the International Olympic Committee, said.
"There will be high security for the Games as is common at most international sporting events. There is no cause to worry.
"The Olympic torch relay in New Delhi earlier this year went off without a problem despite demonstrations because the security was very tight."
The 2010 event is only the second time the four-yearly Games have been awarded to an Asian city, the first being the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur in 1998.
The cricket World Cup in 2011, will be jointly hosted by the four South Asian Test nations, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
