BEIJING - The State Council's decision to slow the operating speeds of China's high-speed trains on Wednesday is receiving a tepid welcome from many Chinese.

The safety of the railways was brought into question when a high-speed train crashed into another on a line near Wenzhou in Zhejiang on July 23. The accident has been blamed on faulty signaling equipment.

At a meeting presided over by Premier Wen Jiabao shortly after the crash, the State Council ordered safety checks to be conducted on both high-speed railways and those that convey trains at slower speeds.
