Default SL Govt. offers high security to the Tigers in response to BD Govt’s security concerns

Bangladesh advises officials to avoid Colombo airport on security reasons

Dhaka, June 4 (ANI): Bangladesh has advised its officials to avoid either any visit to Sri Lanka or use Colombo as a stop-over while travelling, as violence escalated past months in the island nation.….

Bangladesh's Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a circular said that the government feels that Colombo airport is still under threat by the LTTE. It advised all the officials to avoid that airport unless there were "very important" bilateral, regional or international conferences.….

Although there has been a ban on the officials' travel, Bangladesh cricket authorities said its team would leave for Colombo on the second week of June on a five-week tour to play three tests and three one-day matches with the Sri Lanka cricket team.

Mahmudur Rahman, chief executive officer of Bangladesh Cricket Board, said that the Board contacted Cricket Sri Lanka, the regulatory body of Sri Lankan cricket, informing it of the security concern of the Bangladesh government.

Mahmudur told reporters that Cricket Sri Lanka had assured fool-poof security for the Bangladesh team during the visit.

"Sri Lanka has confirmed state-level security for our cricket team during the visit," said Mahmudur, who is hoping to visit the island on schedule...

Security concerns in Sri Lanka are very real concerns. Its not like the hissy fits Indian board is prone to every time they visit BD.

Our players shouldn't be under any threat. They don't have fair skins like the SAans. They can mingle with the crowd with ease. Hoping an incident free tour and a safe return.

They will have no problems. Don't forget that even with this war SL manages to attract way more euro crowds to its beaches than BD.

Hope there will no major drama.
We have a very good relation with SL and even LTTE knows that.
They also dont have anything against us.
Guess our players wont be under any threats.
Plus, we are also non-white, so no reason to worry about.

I also hope and think so... because all these security threats and assurances from the home team in reaponse have become pretty much like formalities these days.

Yea maybe the Tamil Tigers will consider our young Tigers as friends but what happens when our young tigers defeat the srilankans very badly...LOL

Will the Tamil Tigers attack the BD players in that case? I'm sure the players are wondering what to do...LOL

On contrary this could be dangarous as we are very similar face and look. Killing is real indiscriminate in SL and please don't mingle with crowd.

Hope for a trouble free trour.

expected more from you MysoreHuli ... those paneer and potato dosas must have gotten the better of me, again.

indiafan82,
you probably failed to realize how genuinly surprising it was when India expressed security concerns while coming to BD during last month. Because, incase you have no idea, Bangladesh is curretnly enjoying the HIGHEST LEVEL of security and law-order-situation in history. The country is currently monitored by the Combined Defence Forces and a joint massive operation on crime is ongoing for the last 6 months. That practically has worked like a miracle!

What our member gatekeeper pointed out here...was that exactly that -The security concerns expressed by Indian Board was absolutely unnecessary.. because on a state level, Indian Intelligence surely know about current BD situations... even if commoners (like you for example) may not.

However... I can see you instantly taking his comments on a personal level and then started posting distorted comments... as if someone has already attacked Indian crime-situations. Has anyone? Or was he simply criticizing Indian view of BD situations?

To both BD and Indian fans: Requesting not to turn this thread into another BD-IND warzone.
