ISLAMABAD, Aug 30 (APP): A Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman on Tuesday dismissed a news published in a section of press regarding a letter of displeasure from the White House to Pakistan’s ambassador in Washington Jalil Abbas Jilani, terming it “completely incorrect and baseless”.

“No such letter from the White House has been received either in our Mission in Washington or this Ministry,” a statement issued here said.

The spokesman termed the news “nothing but a figment of the reporter’s own imagination”.

“It is unethical on the part of the Reporter, based in Washington, to have filed a baseless story without verifying its authenticity,” the statement added.

The news report had mentioned a letter from White House expressing displeasure over a tweet in which Ambassador shared a photograph of U.S First Lady Michelle Obama visiting his residence at a family party.
