"This should be immediately corrected", Mr Faisal said on Twitter.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Friday confirmed that Pompeo is scheduled to visit Pakistan on September 5.

In a tweet message, the Prime Minister said that on behalf of the people of Pakistan "we extend our prayers and best wishes to those who have been devastated by the floods in Kerala India".

The minister claimed that PTI will win the elections without any hurdle.

However, US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert indicated there would be no correction in response to Pakistan's complaint.

"The United States concurs with the conclusions of the European Union Election Observation Mission, whose report notes that while there were positive changes to the legal framework for elections in Pakistan, these were overshadowed by restrictions on freedom of expression and unequal campaign opportunities", she said. "Prime Minister expressed hope that democracy will take deeper roots in Pakistan, ' said an official statement by the Ministry of External Affairs, indicating India's support to the democratic process in Pakistan, where political parties have expressed concerns over its fairness". He said the appointment of Azam Khan as principal staff officer of the prime minister was based on merit.

"I can only say we stand by our readout", she said at a press conference on Thursday, calling Pakistan "an important partner" in the region.

"Imran Khan is the custodian of public money", he said in an interview with a local TV channel.

The Foreign Minister underscored the importance of the longstanding relations with the United States and said that he looked forward to welcome Secretary Pompeo in Islamabad, the statement said.

Talking to the media, he said that PM Imran Khan had taken historic and unprecedented decisions in the recent cabinet meetings which helped saving millions.

Relations between the United States and Pakistan have been tense following U.S. President Donald Trump's tweet on January 1 in which he accused Pakistan of "lies and deceit" against the United States and providing a "safe haven" to terrorists despite receiving U.S. aid.

Pompeo is due to visit Pakistan early next month and Qureshi said he looks forward to the early engagement and interaction with his USA counterpart for regional peace and stability, saying he believed they "will prove beneficial".
