Wen blames media for exaggerating border dispute

Wen Jiabao
New Delhi, Dec 18: Chinese premier Wen Jiabao on Friday, Dec 17 pointed at the freedom of Indian media and blamed the media for sensationalising the border dispute between India and China.

"In recent years, there has never been a single shot fired... in border areas between us. However, the boundary question has been repeatedly sensationalised by media," stated Wen while speaking with the media itself.

Talking about media's responsibilities, Wen said, "I know that there are over 500 presses in India, and the Indian system desires that the press has freedom."

"But I (Wen), at the same time, believe that the media should play a bigger role in promoting friendship between our two countries," added the Chinese premier.

Wen put all blame on media and also stated that no dispute has been found in the border area recently.

But the fact remains, 'where there's smoke, there's fire'.
