Sri Lanka Cricket says it will not tour Pakistan until security issues there are sorted out.

SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said on Monday that the decision was taken with the welfare of Sri Lankan players and their families in mind.

The announcement comes days after the Pakistan Cricket Board said it invited Sri Lanka for a series later this year.

Pakistan has not hosted any international cricket since gunmen attacked Sri Lanka's team bus in March 2009, killing six policemen and a van driver and wounding several players.
