6:03 am
well at the summit in the shangri la dialog analyst across the 3 day conference had stressed that they believed that general weight on clothes remarks would really be the highlight of the summit. and i believe that has been the case over the course of his 30 minute speech. we covered a lot of grounds. i'll just talk you through some of the topics he mentioned. important to note though, that very early in his speech, he took the time to remark directly on lloyd austin's comments about china, saying that he regarded them as false and me as against his country. now, course he did talk about taiwan that has been a contentious issue of discussion across the course at the summit. he did of course mention that that china will point to the very end if necessary. and he sent a message in his words to those seeking at high ones independence stopped the delusion, the pursuit of independence a day and a general way also spoke about some of the other contentious issues in the asia
6:04 am
pacific. specifically the south china sea. that issue has been discussed at length over the coals that this security summit here in singapore. he made a note saying that china has very good relations with countries in the region specifically on countries. and he urged countries in the region to work together to prevent those outside the region from making the south china sea troubled waters. that, of course, a strike against the us. he also told directly about us china relations and said that it is a mistake for the us to continue to regard china as an adversary or, or even an animal to use the phrase at the word fully a lot throughout his speech and remarks that china is not a bully and use the words that we are all clear who the bully is. he said that china with development out. it was a speech that, of course,
6:05 am
contained some forceful language directly, mostly after he left, but also took her time to speak in a positive tone about china engagement in the region cicily with se, asia and countries around his south trying to see so and speech with that was very much peered at the audience here in southeast asia, understanding that it's not just for us watching, but also defense change from around the region. jessica, for now. thank you very much. indeed. jessica washington talking to his from singapore as good adrian brown, who's in hong kong. and the comments from china's defense minister are strong ones as jessica was just describing. but how much of a surprise ali here? first of all, rob, apologies for the helicopter. you may be out here in the background and not sound perhaps through a report about defense. but yes, what we heard from china's defense minister on sunday is nothing new. i think for the past 5 years, i've heard chinese leaders say that relations with united states,
6:06 am
we're at a critical stage. i think what's more critical is what is happening in the seas and the skies off taiwan. also in the south china sea and the east china sea, where there is a danger that the military brinkman ship between the air force is a ne, these of china the united states and the u. s. allies could get out of control. and that's what lloyd austin, the u. s. defense secretary was referring to on saturday when he spoke of the need to improve communication between these 2 sides to prevent things spiraling out of control. now the message to the overriding theme at this conference, rob host, in china's desire to warn the united states the time for containing china is over. that period has passed. what really rankles china? i think most of all right now is the security block that the united states wants to form with india, japan and australia,
6:07 am
and the defense minister from china on sunday accused the u. s. of trying to hijack countries in the region. his message is simply this, you cannot trust united states, look at the calamitous withdrawal of us forces from afghanistan. and it's true that what happened that afghanistan did give a number of leaders in asia. pause for thought, but they're also wary about china. and most of all, rob, they don't want to be caught in the middle. they want to have, you know, economic ties with china. it's the most important economy in the region. but they also want to deal with the united states and beyond what is happening off taiwan and in east asia and the south china sea is china's growing influence in the south pacific. a concern, of course, for australia and new zealand. adrian, thank you very much indeed. adrian brown, talking to us from hong kong under the marches, demanding tougher gun laws have been taking place across the u. s. the brought us
