In his first interview to foreign media, PM Khan had said that he has asked his government to find out the status of the case. On the Mumbai terror attacks of 2008, Khan said: "We also want something done about the bombers of Mumbai".

The transcript was released under an agreement with Comey, who challenged a subpoena from the committee in court and pressed for an open hearing out of concerns his comments would be selectively leaked.
