Pakistani Foreign Minister’s visit to Sri Lanka cancelled

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s visit to Sri Lanka was cancelled yesterday, diplomatic sources said.

The tour has been cancelled due to security clearance issues in wake of the recent terror attacks.

Security forces have been on high alert after the Easter bombings, officials said, amid intelligence reports that militants were planning more attacks before the start of Ramazan.

“Security will be tight for several days because the military and the police are still tracking down suspects,” a police intelligence official said.

Another government source said that a document has been released among key security establishments, instructing all police and security forces to remain on high alert as militants are expected to attempt another attack before Ramazan. (Pakistan Today)
