The Hindu : International / India & World : China rejects CIA reports on Sino-Indian war
China on Friday dismissed as “groundless” the contents of the reported declassified CIA documents on events leading up to the 1962 Sino-Indian war and went on to claim that “positive progress” was made on the vexed boundary negotiations between the countries.
Firstly, it is an issue of national importance to India. CBCNN does not report this incident thus far when it should have been providing a comprehensive coverage of the issue. And when it does, it presents us the Chinese viewpoint. This is the reason why this rag is called the Chennai-Based Chinese National Newspaper.
On the India-China border war, CIA analysts suggested that Beijing
and its then premier Zhou Enlai “deceived” his Indian counterpart,
Jawaharlal Nehru and India through procrastination and dissembling,
media reports from Washington said.
At the same time, the spokesman was eloquent on the current state
of bilateral ties, including the border issue. China-India Strategic
Cooperative Partnership enjoyed consistent development with fruitful
cooperation in various fields, he told PTI here.
CBCNN says CIA "suggested", when CIA emphatically stated that Beijing deceived India. The CBCNN obviously cannot afford to upset its bosses. CBCNN then goes on to balance CIA's "allegations" with China's vain talk. Wonderful. Now that the gullible readers are convinced that the CIA report is utter rubbish, CBCNN quotes selectively from the report. Why do we still thin CBCNN reports anything of national concern to its readers?
