Musharraf says cannot come for Kochi one-dayer

March 15, 2005 13:34 IST

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has expressed his inability to make it to Kochi to watch the Indo-Pak one-day cricket match on April two, sources in the Prime Minister's Office said on Tuesday.

Due to security considerations, India had picked Kochi for Musharraf's visit.

He said he cannot come to Kochi due to prior commitments, the sources said.

The sources also made it clear that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be meeting Musharraf when he visits to watch a match. But 'there is no formal agenda for bilateral talks'.

"This is not going to be a summit meeting. President Musharraf wants to watch a match. We are trying to work out a mutually convenient date," they said.

They said no other date has been suggested.
