The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has claimed it is satisfied with the security arrangements in Islamabad for next month's Davis Cup tie between hosts Pakistan and India after the visiting nation asked for the contest to be relocated.
All India Tennis Association (AITA) President Praveen Mahajan told Agence France-Presse the governing body had submitted a request to the ITF to switch the venue because of escalating diplomatic tension between the nuclear-armed neighbours.
Pakistan suspended bilateral trade with India last week and announced it would expel India's Ambassador after New Delhi revoked the special autonomy status of Kashmir, the contested region which the two countries have fought two wars over.
A suicide attack in Kashmir in February further worsened India-Pakistan relations after 40 members of the Indian police force were killed in the bombing, which Pakistani militants claimed responsibility for.
Pakistan claimed to have shot down two Indian military jets and captured a pilot in response.
The tension spilled over into the sporting world when India refused Pakistani athletes visas for an International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup in New Delhi.
It prompted the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to urge International Federations not to hold major events in India until the Government provided assurances that athletes from all countries will be able to compete.
The suspension was lifted by the IOC in June, while a Cricket World Cup match between India and Pakistan went ahead without incident in England during the same month.
The latest escalation has put question marks over whether the Davis Cup tie in Islamabad on September 14 and 15 - India's first visit to Pakistan in the competition since 1964 - will be staged as planned.
A spokesperson for the ITF told insidethegames it expects the match to take place as scheduled but it would "monitor the situation closely" in the region.
"Safety and security are the ITF’s highest priority," the spokesperson said.
"We are working closely with the host nation and independent expert security advisors - the ITF is satisfied with their current security assessment of the site and the security plan in place.
"The overall security risk rating for Pakistan has not changed, however, we will continue to monitor the situation closely with our advisors."
