The thing is: They lost trust in FAA.
Before the Max fiasco, they are quite on the same page with FAA / EASA for granting airworthiness certificate.
But now, they know they can't trust FAA (or anybody else) and have to evaluate the plane themselves. Which they should be doing in the first place, just like how FAA / EASA treated Soviet/Russian, Brazilian, and Chinese made planes.
(There is no point delay the planes from flying on political grounds like some media suggested. The only party hurt by that is the airlines in their own country who already have or ordered the grounded planes.)
