International Hockey Federation (FIH) president, Leandro Negre, on Thursday gave a thumbs-up to the security arrangements, calling them "of the highest level".
"I am very happy with the security arrangements. They are of the highest level," he said.
The FIH chief, who arrived on Wednesday night for the World Cup starting on Sunday, said the organisers had done their best and everyone should now leave it to the security experts.
"With the international players around, you cannot afford to take any chances. Players' safety is very important to us. You have to go by the police because they are in the best position to advise you on matters related to security," he said.
