Islamabad:

Pakistan is promising comprehensive security if Bangladesh becomes the first international cricket team to tour the country in more than three years.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik says he will meet with Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf on Wednesday and "assure him full security" if Bangladesh agrees to a proposed visit in April.

Foreign cricket teams have stopped touring Pakistan since March 2009 after an attack on the Sri Lankan team bus left six police officials and a van driver dead.

Last month, China's hockey team toured Pakistan and played games in Karachi, Lahore and Faislabad.
