"I don't want to give India any ultimatum," Khan told reporters in Lahore yesterday. "The chances (of series) are getting slimmer because I think their problem is they mix politics with sports," he said.
Both the PCB and the Board of Control for Cricket in India last year signed a Memorandum of Understanding to play six series' between 2015-2023 with Pakistan hosting India for Tests, ODIs and Twenty20s in the United Arab Emirates in December.
Khan said he had at least thrice raised the issue of Pakistan vs India series with BCCI officials during various meetings of International Cricket Council since he took over the charge of PCB chairman in last September.
"We are not pleading them, we are not kneeling down, we are just telling them that you have signed MoU and tell us whether you are honoring it or not," Khan said.
The PCB chairman hopes India will decide either way about December's tour and he is likely to meet with secretary general BCCI Anurag Thakur on the sidelines of an ICC meeting in UAE in October.
"Now the ball is in Indian court," he said. "I will talk to whosoever comes from India and tell him that so far you haven't taken the permission from your government, which is quite unfair."
Both countries have not played a Test match since India beat Pakistan 1-0 at home in 2007. And Khan said the PCB could financially survive even without playing against its arch-rivals.
Pakistan has hosted just one Test playing country since gunmen attacked on Sri Lanka team bus at Lahore in 2009 when Zimbabwe played three ODIs and two Twenty20s -- also in Lahore in May.
