Nauert said that they were stood by the readout issued by the state department stating that Pompeo has pressed Prime Minister Imran Khan in a phone call to take "decisive action" against "terrorists" operating in Pakistan.

"The impression that has been given in their press release, in which they are mentioning "terrorists operating in Pakistan", is contrary to the facts with reality. This should be corrected immediately".

Pakistan's foreign ministry called for the United States to amend its statement, but US State Department said it stands by its account.

However, according to Pakistan's Foreign Office, Mr Pompeo congratulated Imran Khan while discussing other issues of interest, but there was no mention of "terrorists operating in Pakistan".
