The IOC says it set a Dec. 1 deadline for Pakistan to show that its Olympic committee and sports federations are being run without interference from the national government.



The players gave their all on the sands of London. See how it shook out.

Pakistan has been facing possible suspension from the Olympic movement under IOC rules which guarantee the independence of elected sports officials.

A meeting at IOC headquarters was called to address "allegations that parallel bodies have been established" to rival officially recognized sports federations.

The IOC says government authorities pledged that they "will cooperate and refrain from any undue intervention."

The IOC says it "hopes that mutual understanding and a productive relationship can now be established."
