When the Pakistani media falsely implicates India for spreading canards, little does it introspect. Because when it comes to biased reporting, there’s no press which comes close to its Pakistani counterparts. And now, there’s an addition to the endless list of wrong reporting on the part of the Pakistani press. Recently, stories circulated that Russia is willing to join the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

A PTI report carried by CNN News18 says Russia has denied such claims. “Reports appearing in Pakistan’s media about some secret talks between Russia and Pakistan on the creation of CPEC do not correspond to the realities. The possibility of Russia joining this initiative is not being discussed with Islamabad,” reads a statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry.

“Our trade and economic cooperation with Pakistan has its own value. We aim for its further strengthening. The implementation by Russian companies of business projects in IRP, including the construction of North-South gas pipeline from Karachi to Lahore, are implemented on bilateral basis,” the statement further adds.

So here we go. Instead of blaming India for doing fabricated stories, the Pakistani media should follow the core value of journalism which is Truth!
