June 21, 2011

For Immediate Release

Contact: Alberto Rodriguez,

Islamabad, June 21 – A recent media report alleging that U.S. soldiers tried to crash the gate of the Frontier Corps Complex in Peshawar is categorically false. Furthermore, a report that the U.S. Ambassador had been summoned to receive a protest letter about the incident is also categorically false.

No such incident occurred. The Embassy has received no such letter.

The U.S. military remains ready to work with the Pakistani military on matters of mutual interest.
