Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim lambasted Singapore for voicing support on Malaysia's initiative in handling the MH370 tragedy, New Straits Times online reported Wednesday.

Anwar described Singapore as "sometimes inconsistent" with its own belief, saying that the country had often championed meritocracy but would settle for "mediocrity" in terms of what was taking place in neighbouring countries including Malaysia.

"We the opposition are not totally against the initiative taken by the Malaysian government, but we question the lack of transparency.

"And Singapore should not infer us the opposition as being irresponsible in its criticism." Anwar also claimed that he was misquoted in a foreign report, which read that he could solve the missing jet mystery in one second.

"What I actually meant was that I would take spontaneous or immediate action on the case."
