BEIJING (Reuters) – China has decided to accept an invitation to join the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) review panel on the Boeing 737 MAX, an official of the Asian nation’s aviation regulator said on Tuesday.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China has decided to send experts to be part of the panel, the official, in the regulator’s media relations department, told Reuters.

Last week, the FAA said it was forming an international team to review the safety of the aircraft, grounded worldwide following two deadly crashes since October.
