Malaysia’s government has been widely criticized over its handling of the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and disclosures of its investigations. But on Sunday, U.S. President Barack Obama had words of praise during a visit to the southeast Asian country.

He said the Malaysian government has been “forthcoming” with the United States about the information it has.

“The Malaysian government is working tirelessly to recover the aircraft and investigate exactly what happened,” Obama told reporters. He reiterated that the United States would continue to aid in the search and offered condolences to loved ones of those lost.

Obama is the first American leader in decades to visit Malaysia, the Asian nation grappling with the mystery of the vanished jetliner.

He has remained largely quiet over the issue, as an international underwater search focuses on the southern Indian Ocean.
