Pakistani state broadcaster apologises for error during PM Khan's Beijing speech

Pakistan's state-run news channel PTV ran a dateline which said "Begging" instead of "Beijing" on screen during the live broadcast of Prime Minister Imran Khan's speech in China and became a target of trolling by netizens.

During the live telecast of his address at the Central Party School (of the Communist Party of China) on PTV, his location was misspelled from Beijing as - wait for it - begging.

The misspelled word appeared in the top left corner of the screen, where the channel meant to show where Khan was.

During the speech, PTV had written "begging" on screen instead of "Beijing" by mistake. It appeared on screen for 20 seconds, before being removed.

The faux pas is seen particularly ironic since the Pakistani premier is on a mission to secure a package from China to overcome a major economic crisis his country is confronted with.

Addressing the issue as a "typographical error", the news channel tweeted that they have initiated "strict action" against those who are responsible for the act.

According to Pakistani media reports, country's Information and Broadcasting minister Fawad Chaudhry has ordered an inquiry into the "spelling error".

Notably, Imran Khan's maiden official visit to China as the Prime Minister of Pakistan is aimed at getting additional aid for the cash-strapped nation, which has also approached the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a bailout.

China while stating that it would extend necessary support to Pakistan reportedly committed Dollars six billion funding but did not so far officially confirmed it.
