Blaming the media in India and China for being unnecessarily high-pitched on their bilateral ties, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the leadership of both countries wanted a peaceful resolution of the border issue.

“Despite the persistence of the border problem, both countries have agreed that peace and tranquillity should be maintained along the border. Therefore, by and large, sometimes something appears in the newspapers in our country, something appears in the newspapers in China, that I think invites comments, but overall our relations are quite good.''

The Prime Minister said he had good working relations with Chinese President Hu Jintao and Prime Minister Wen Jiabao and he was convinced that the top leadership of China wanted peaceful resolution of all problems between the two nations.
