ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office (FO) on Thursday rejected the United States State Department’s readout about the call between Prime Minister Imran Khan and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “factually incorrect”.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal in his tweet said, “Pakistan takes exception to the factually incorrect statement issued by US State Dept on today’s phone call between Prime Minister Imran Khan and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
