Pakistan to US: Please Immediately Correct Your "Factually Incorrect" Account of Call Between Pompeo and Prime Minister Khan. US: No

Pakistan is challenging the U.S. State Department’s official account of a call that happened on Thursday between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the nation’s new prime minister, Imran Khan, with Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanding that the United States “immediately” amend its “factually incorrect statement.”

A statement released after the call by State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in part, “Pompeo raised the importance of Pakistan taking decisive action against all terrorists operating in Pakistan and its vital role in promoting the Afghan peace process.”

Dr. Mohammad Faisal, a spokesperson for Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded on Twitter, asserting that “there was no mention at all in the conversation about terrorists operating in Pakistan.”

At a press conference following that exchange, Nauert said, “I can only say we stand by our readout.”
