# Headlines Strategy and Stories Tops World

Pakistan’s official news channel PTV has apologized for writing the English word ‘Begging’ instead of ‘Beijing’ on the screen during the live broadcast of its Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the Central Party School of the ruling Communist Party of China .

Khan, who went on official visit to China with the intention of economic package for Pakistan, who was passing through economic crisis, was addressing a program at the Central Party School located in Beijing on Sunday. Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) was broadcasting it directly. This is a mistake during this time. The word continued to appear on screen for about 20 seconds, which was later changed.




The official Twitter handle of ‘PTV News’ tweeted that in the PM’s speech on China visit today, there was a mistake related to writing during the broadcast today. This mistake lasted for about 20 seconds, which was later removed. We are sorry about this incident. Action has been started under the rule against the concerned officers.

According to the Pakistan media, this error also became particularly vulgar, because Khan was on a visit to China as part of his attempt to bail out Pakistan. Pakistan’s Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhary has ordered an inquiry. This mistake has also been widely criticized on social media.
