    New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistan’s UN representative Maleeha Lodhi has been mocked on social media for mistakenly describing UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the British “Foreign Minister”'.

    Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistani's envoy to the United Nations, recently posted a picture on Twitter of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan having a conversation with his British counterpart Boris Johnson.

    However, Lodhi erroneously attributed the "foreign minister" title to Johnson, who was previously the UK's top diplomat.

    Although Lodhi later took down her tweet, a lot of users by then had already taken a screenshot of it,.

    The massive troll-fest caused her to apologise for her mistake later in a tweet and cite a typo error behind it.

    It was, however, not the first blooper from Lodhi on social media.

    In 2017, she showcased a photograph of a scarred girl at the United Nations and claimed she was a victim of pellet guns in Kashmir. It was later found out to be of a 17-year-old Palestinian girl’s photo taken in Gaza in 2014 by award-winning photographer Heidi Levine.
