Chinese newspaper, Global Times, has advised Indian media outlets to take an objective view of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), reported by Radio Pakistan.

According to a report of the newspaper, many Indian media outlets, which have smeared the CPEC as a “debt trap,” kept silent about a news report which clarified that debt from China made up only a small part of Pakistan’s total debt burden.

The newspaper further writes that China-Pakistan relations should not be affected by an imaginary debt trap, but Indian media outlets seem unwilling to clear up the misunderstandings about the CPEC.
