China’s central bank criticised the media on Thursday, saying some media continuously publish “inaccurate information” on the yuan foreign exchange rate, which help some “speculative forces” short the yuan.

Recent media reports on the yuan interrupt normal operation of the foreign exchange market, the People’s Bank of China said in a notice on its website, adding that China does not intend to compete in international trade by depreciating the yuan.

Citing sources, Reuters earlier on Thursday reported that China’s central bank is willing to let the yuan fall to 6.8 per dollar in 2016 to support the economy.
