Corrections for the Record

Being spokesman for the US Embassy in Islamabad has to be something of a thankless task. Take this offering today…

Correction For The Record: No Airstrip On U.S. Embassy Compound

Islamabad, November 24, 2010 – There was a story in the Pakistani press Tuesday that the United States Embassy plans to build an airstrip on its compound.

The U.S. Embassy categorically denies any such charge.  There are no plans to build an airstrip on the U.S. Embassy compound.

We also note that funding for all construction of the Embassy compound comes from a specific appropriation from the U.S. Congress.  No Embassy construction costs come from Kerry-Lugar-Berman funds or any other development assistance to Pakistan.

The United States Embassy was never contacted about this story.

Our Spokesperson is available to respond to all questions concerning any U.S. Embassy activity at any time.
