Imran Khan saying Japan and Germany share a border is all of us after bunking Geography class
Imran Khan addressed a joint press conference with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Iran last night and made an impassioned speech about the two countries; Pakistan and Iran working to have better relations with one another.
During the address, he tried to give the example of Germany and France, but ended up making a hilarious mix up
PM Khan wanted to use Germany and France as an example of opening border industries together which has lead to them having harmonious relationships with one another since they have vested economic interests with one another. But, instead of saying France, Khan accidentally said ‘Japan’ and of course, people caught his slip of tongue immediately and wouldn’t let go.

And people immediately took this as an opportunity to troll the Prime Minister. Even Bilawal Zardari jumped on the trolling bandwagon.
😳 our Prime Minister thinks that Germany & Japan share a border. How embarrassing, this is what happenes when you @UniofOxford let people in just because they can play cricket. https://t.co/XJoycRsLG9

Germany and Japan did not fight each other during WWII.
Germany and Japan do not share a border.
Japan does not share a border with any country because it is an island. Islands are surrounded by water.
Imran Khan is losing his marbles.

What is he talking about?? Germany and Japan were on the same side in World War 2. And they share a border? According to which map? pic.twitter.com/7HlShnoVmh

There were those who jumped to Imran Khan’s defense immediately
It should be pretty obvious to someone with even half a brain cell that Imran Khan meant France and Germany. You're acting like you've never slipped up and used the wrong word or name for something.

How smart of you to nitpick on an obvious slip of the tongue. Proud moment indeed!🏅

its a slip of tongue, it was Germany and France.. on multiple occasions he has mentioned about various wars between them countries (just like indo-pak) in the past but now they have open borders and whole region is progressing.

But because of his little slip of the tongue, people largely ignored the other things he said and how fruitful the visit might prove to be. According to The News, both countries agreed that they needed to make sure their borders were not used for terrorist activities, smuggling of narcotics, human trafficking, hostage-taking, money- laundering and abduction.
Other than that, Pakistanis languishing in Irani prisons might also be returning home soon according to a tweet by Shireen Mazari. So yaaay!
Apart from the many critical issues raised and understanding reached during PM's visit to Iran, the PM also raised the issue of Pak prisoners in Iran – numbering 134 at present. Especially sought release of 32 held for petty crimes & we shd be getting good news on this very soon.
