According to Dawn, Fawad Chaudhary, the Information Minister, while addressing media persons at Pakistan Information Department (PID) in Islamabad on Friday, said that the second cabinet meeting after taking oath of office, decision to revise working hours in government institutions was also taken.
Dr. Mohammad Faisal, a spokesperson for Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded on Twitter, asserting that "there was no mention at all in the conversation about terrorists operating in Pakistan".
U.S. officials routinely raise the issue of Taliban and other militants operating from safe havens in Pakistan, where they plot attacks on USA and Afghan troops across the border.
India Express had all the details of their first conversation and they seemed to be of a very positive nature: "Sources said that the phone conversation between Modi and Khan took place at 9 pm, though the duration of the call was not revealed".
State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert stood by the readout on Thursday while speaking to reporters hours after her Pakistani counterpart demanded on Twitter an immediate correction to what he dismissed as "the factually incorrect" USA statement. Responding to a question about loadshedding during Eidul Azha holidays, Chaudhry said Prime Minister Khan had taken notice of it and sought a report from the Wapda chairman.
"The secretary had a good call with the new prime minister and we look forward to having a good relationship with them in the future", Ms Nauert added.

Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will not face off this season though unless Barcelona take on Juventus in the Champions League. Ronaldo has lifted a record five Champions Leagues titles - four with Real Madrid and one with Manchester United .
Pakistan's foreign ministry called for the United States to amend its statement, but U.S. State Department said it stands by its account.
"They (Pakistan) are an important partner".
The most prominent guest in Khan's prime ministerial swearing-in ceremony in Islamabad on August 18, 2018, for reasons beyond the vibrant hue of his turban, was Khan's old cricket associate and friend from India, Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Pompeo is expected to meet with Khan on September 5, which Reuters reports is expected to be the new leader's first reception with a foreign dignitary.
Evident in his words and actions is his wish to see Pakistan and India as peaceful neighbours who can have a bilateral relationship with an emphasis on finding solutions for issues that affect millions of people on both sides of the barbed, bloodied border. "We condemn the horrific acts of terrorist violence that marred this process, including the latest attack outside a polling station in Quetta on election day".
