An article in Reuters confirmed:
"We had already put in place security measures but we are, of course, sensitive to the safety concerns of all our conference participants following the terrorist attacks on Mumbai," said Stephen Dunbar Johnson, Publisher of the IHT.
"We felt it was inappropriate to hold this conference at such a difficult time for India - but we plan to be back as soon as the situation is stabilised," he added in statement issued on Thursday.
The IHT said it was "fully committed to bringing its conference to New Delhi early next year."
The Conference is expected to be back on track in New Delhi by March 2009, however, the dates are yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned for more on this.
