Pakistan’s state-run news channel has apologised after it ran “Begging” dateline instead of “Beijing” on screen during the live broadcast of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the Central Party School of the ruling Communist Party of China.


Khan, who is on an official trip to China to secure an economic package for his country, was addressing a ceremony on Sunday at the Central Party School in Beijing which was shown live by Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV).

During Khan’s speech, PTV had written “Begging” instead of “Beijing” in the top left corner of the screen. The word remained on screen for 20 seconds. “Today, during a live address of the Prime Minister during his ongoing visit to China, a typographical error took place, which remained on screen for 20 seconds & later removed. This incident is regrettable. Strict action has been initiated under rules against concerned officials,” the official twitter handle of PTV News tweeted
