To further discuss the government's response to this massive disaster, we are joined by our current affairs commentator, Teng Jimeng. Hello, Mr. Teng.
Q1: What do you think about the government's response to the landslide and relief and rescue measures currently in place?
Q2: Experts say the landslide, which carried mud and rubble over five kilometers, could have been caused by the terrain vulnerable to heavy rains after the recent drought. The 2008 Sichuan earthquake could have also loosened soil and rocks on the mountainside. Do you think more could have been done to prevent this disaster from happening?
