Discussion: Shangri-La Dialogue

Asia’s largest annual security forum, the Shangri-La Dialogue, has concluded in Singapore. Territorial disputes in the South China Sea dominated the three-day meeting, with both US Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Chinese Admiral Sun Jianguo delivering speeches on the issue. The latter pushed back against criticisms of China’s actions in the South China Sea, and reasserted China’s stance. How were his comments received? What are the views of China’s neighboring countries on the role of both China and the US in the region? Carter expressed concerns about the prospect of further militarization in the region. Is the risk of conflict among the involved nations growing ever higher? Join us for an in-depth discussion with Mr. Zhang Junshe, Senior Captain from the China Naval Research Institute; in Washington DC, Christopher Yung, Donald Bren Chair of Non-Western Strategic Thought at Marine Corps University; and in Singapore, Dr. Ei Sun Oh, Senior Fellow from the Institute of Defense & Strategic Studies at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Nanyang Technological University.
