As the Shangri-La Dialogue kicked off in Singapore, CCTVNews examined the role and purpose of one of Asia’s largest annual security summits. Why does China view the platform as such an important one, and how is it different from other diplomatic mechanisms? Ahead of the summit, US Defense Secretary Ash Carter spoke forcefully about China’s military moves in the South China Sea. How might this ongoing war of words impact China-US ties? What other issues will shape the geopolitical balance of the region, and how might the Shangri-La Dialogue address those issues? Join us for a discussion with Yang Xiyu, Senior Fellow at the China Institute of International Studies; in Washington DC, Dean Cheng, Senior Research Fellow at the Asian Studies Center of the Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy at The Heritage Foundation; and in Singapore, Lim Tai Wei, Adjunct Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore.
