New Delhi, March 17 (IANS) Press Council of India (PCI) chairman Markandey Katju has praised Pakistan journalists, who he said were courageously, 'even at the risk of their lives, reporting true facts about Pakistan'.

I am sure that the Pakistan journalists will continue doing their duty to the people in a responsible manner, and thereby win further applause for their professionalism,' Katju said.

On behalf of the Indian media, Katju conveyed his warm greetings to the Pakistani mediapersons and also assured them of 'our sympathy in your courageous struggle'.
