The transcript of United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s remarks at a press briefing has listed Singapore as part of Malaysia.

The slip-up, much to the amusement of Singaporeans, was shared by user Chun Han Wong.

In his tweet, he said, “U.S. State Department transcript of Pompeo’s Monday briefing lists Singapore as a part of Malaysia. The hosts of the just-concluded #TrumpKimSummit might have something to say about that…”

His Tweet received 199 retweets and almost 2 likes.

Hilarity ensued with netizens replying to his tweet.

The word ‘Malaysia’ has since been removed from the transcript.
