See Pee See-China took a haughty, nationalistic and magisterial stance from the outset. It at ti ...
I disagree with you and so will many others. China is doing the best it can, and in fact most of the early misinformation came from Malaysian sources. In fact, in the early hours after MH370 went missing, other 'experts' thought if it had gone down in the sea, it could still be floating, or just below the surface, so
the main search was visual, with China quickly sending ships and aircraft. As far as the debris in the sea is concerned, it was quite right for China to report it, because at the time, the possible whereabouts of the airplane was completely unknown. Others reported debris in various areas too. China never claimed it came from an aircraft, but merely that debris had been spotted. Elsewhere it was reported that debris turned out to be ship's garbage. Furthermore, the change in search area was due to advice from the UK, based on complex extrapolation of signals received from MH370 via the satellites of London-headquartered Inmarsat. From the beginning, the international press has been speculating on the whereabouts of MH370, and well as how and why it got there, and usual, trying to invent news instead of just reporting it.
China has a right to be heavily involved. Most of the passengers are Chinese.
If any country should be criticised, then it would be Malaysia. Though it has since tried to put things right, at the start, lack of information, and later, misleading information from Malaysian officials caused unnecessary pain and suffering to the families of passengers. It is hard to imagine what they are going through. One can only deeply sympathise with them, and hope that MH370 will soon be located .
Contrary to what you suggest, China has been, and is doing a good job, with its ships and aircraft acting in accordance with the requests of the Australian coordinator, and in cooperation with several other countries.
I have noticed that many of your posts are critical of China, so I wonder why it is that you bother to write on website of the leading Chinese government-owned newspaper. La!
