Reports on dam construction ‘inconsistent’: China

October 26, 2009 - 0:0

Criticizing the Indian media, China has said the reports of construction of a dam by it on the Brahmaputra river are “inconsistent with facts”.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu, in a recent media briefing in China, said, “As far as I know, the reports of Indian media are inconsistent with facts”.
Ma was replying to a question on recent media reports that China has decided to build a dam on the upstream section of Yalu Tsangpo river (Brahmaputra’s name on Chinese side).
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had last week told a delegation from Arunachal Pradesh that China has not constructed any dam on Brahmaputra river and only run-off-the-river construction had been made.
