They, except the FAA, can now rightfully say they were lied to by B. If they let Max fly again without very tough conditions & it crashes again, they can rightfully be accused of sharing as much blame as B.
Why would they relish such a prospect ?
International regulators are involved in the process with the FAA. The FAA has brought in outside experts from NASA and the air Force. If it is determined that the MCAS 2.0 fix will prevent incidents from becoming crashes and that nothing about it requires simulator training and European regulators insist on a complete recertification, the US can (and will) retaliate and make Airbus recertify the A320NEO and A330NEO from scratch.
Some countries may require SIM training for no real reason because it sounds good to the public.
