An IOC statment said that security at the London 2012 Olympic Games is a top priority.
"Security is directly handled by the local authorities, as they know best what is appropriate and proportionate. We are confident they will do a good job in this domain," it read.
London & Partners react
Meanwhile London & Partners head of communications for business and major events Chloe Couchman said that event cancellations as a result of the riots were minimal, especially for business tourism, which is traditionally quieter in July and August.
"The vast majority of the city remained unaffected and, in particular, key business destinations such as Canary Wharf, the City of London and the West End. London was open for business and operating as usual," she added.
Couchman added that London & Partners believe there will be little long-term impact on demand for London and the rest of Britain as a tourist and business destination.
"The trade bodies ETOA (European Tour Operators Association) and UK Inbound have both reported that in the aftermath of the riots that there were minimal numbers of cancellations to bookings from overseas," she said.
C&IT is currently running a poll to canvas the industry's opinion on whether the riots have affected confidence for the 2012 Olympic Games.
