China has postponed plans to send a pair of pandas to Malaysia next week, as bilateral relations remain uneasy over the disappearance of flight MH370.

The two countries agreed in 2012 that China would send the giant pandas for a 10-year stay in Malaysia, in Beijing's latest use of "panda diplomacy" to cement ties with other countries.

But Malaysia's environment minister said they are waiting for the results of MH370.

The airline and Malaysia's government have come under withering public criticism in China, whose 153 nationals made up the bulk of the 239 aboard the missing jet.
