NEW DELHI: India has once again made clear its stance that, for the time being, there will be no bilateral cricket series between the two countries, even at neutral venues.

According to a report of the Indian media, Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj indicated the government's stance at a meeting of the consultative committee attached to the ministry that offered a review of relations with neighbours.

On being asked about restarting the long-suspended 'cricket diplomacy' between the rivals, Swaraj said the high number of cross-border firings do not set the tone for any kind of bilateral engagements, the report added.
