John McCainJohn Sidney McCainTrump's America fights back Mellman: Trump can fix it GOP strategist Steve Schmidt denounces party, will vote for Democrats MORE incorrectly stated Monday morning that Iraq shares a border with Pakistan.

Asked if the situation in Afghanistan is "precarious and urgent" on ABC's Good Morning America, McCain said, "it's a serious situation, but there's a lot of things we need to do."

"We have a lot of work to do and I'm afraid it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq/Pakistan border."

McCain did not catch or correct himself later in the interview.

This is second high profile geographical error McCain has made in as many weeks. Last week, McCain made repeated reference to the country of Czechoslovakia, which split into two separate countries in 1993.
