Pakistan's cricket chief Friday said he hoped the successful and trouble-free hosting of the ongoing Asia Cup will convince other countries it is safe to come and play in the Champions Trophy.

The year's biggest one-day tournament, featuring the top eight Test nations, is due to be held in Pakistan from September 11-28.

But touring Pakistan has been a security concern for several foreign teams, especially Australia, who postponed their March-April visit after a series of suicide bomb blasts.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Nasim Ashraf declared his country safe as the six-nation Asia Cup approaches its climax with cricket -- rather than security -- making the headlines.

"The successful hosting of the Asia Cup proves that Pakistan is a safe country," Ashraf told a press conference after returning from the International Cricket Council's annual conference in Dubai.
