US-Indian press collaborating, jokes Obama!

New Delhi: US President Barack Obama didn’t miss the chance to take a dig at the press even as he answered some tough questions from reporters here Monday.

“It looks like the US and Indian press are collaborating!” Obama jokingly said as both Indian and American mediapersons were eager to get his take on the Kashmir issue at the joint press conference with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

“We are not looking at that sort of partnership,” he said, urging the press to wait till his parliament address.

Obama, however, said the US cannot provide a solution to the India-Pakistan dispute over Kashmir but it can play “any role” if the two countries so desire.
