Pakistan Foreign office issues REBUKE to US State Department:
Pakistan takes exception to the factually incorrect statement issued by US State Dept on todayâ€™s phone call btwn PM Khan & Sec Pompeo. There was no mention at all in the conversation about terrorists operating in Pakistan. This shd be immediately corrected
Pakistan Foreign office calls Press Conference
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while addressing a press conference at the Foreign Office (FO) on Friday asserted that the United States (US) handout on a phone call between Prime Minister Imran Khan and US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo a day earlier which mentioned terrorists operating in Pakistan "is not representative of the facts".
P.S: At least the Foreign secretary is not a mumbling, bumbling idiot and can string together 2 sentences in both English and Urdu and can speak fluently :lol
