In my opinion, this is totally senseless. Why should the Chinese government demand more money from the New Zealand government for the grieving parents of the Chinese students who were killed during the Christchurch earthquake in February, just because of China's one-child policy? Of course, I would also grieve with the parents but I know that extra pay-outs will not bring their loved ones back.  But maybe, the onus must fall on the Chinese government themselves; they should be compensating their own citizens. After all, who was responsible for the one-child policy in the first place and did not know when just to rescind it after their economy grew?
