Commonwealth Games preparations on track

Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith has given his tick of approval to India's preparations for this year's Commonwealth Games.

There have been serious doubts about New Delhi's ability to be ready for the games in October but on a three-day visit to the city, Mr Smith has inspected the main facilities and is confident they will be ready in time.

The Foreign Minister says he will also receive a briefing on security from Indian officials during the trip.

"As I'm here for the next couple of days I will have conversations with my counterpart and officials to receive up-to-date advice on the security coordination as far as the games are concerned," he said.

Mr Smith will also work to repair the damage to Australia's reputation following a series of attacks on Indian students.
