BELEK, Turkey: The IOC says Pakistan's Olympic committee will be suspended in July unless it complies with rules banning government interference.

  
The IOC had set a previous deadline of Dec. 1 for Pakistan to show that its Olympic committee and sports federations are being run without interference.
  
The International Olympic Committee said Thursday that the Pakistan government "has not kept its promises" but has proposed further dialogue.
  
The IOC says the executive board will suspend Pakistan from the Olympic movement at its next meeting in July if the country does not conform with rules guaranteeing the independence of elected sports officials.
  
Suspension would mean that Pakistani athletes could not compete for their country in the Olympics. Pakistani Olympic officials would also be barred from international Olympic meetings
