a stalk warning from china's defense minister of foreign interference, and taiwan is doomed to fail when fail hose comments of the shangri la dialogue and singapore bod, the latest, and a spots between washington and beijing over ty, ones future on saturday. us defense secretary lloyd austin, accused beijing of intimidation and aggression towards the island. china says it's, we're unification with the mainland is inevitable. john, during your, we will resolutely crush any attempt to pursue taiwanese independence. let me make this clear. anyone dares to see taiwan from china, we will not hesitate to fight. we will fight at all costs and we will fight to the end. this is the only choice for china. jessica washington is joining us now from singapore. jessica, some strong words in china's defense minister, but perhaps no surprises. that's exactly right. we heard some strong words from china, defense minister,
8:03 am
no big surprises, but i do want to bring in just for her excellent analysis may now was from the international institute for strategic studies with who has a focus on chinese defense policy. we had some very strong comments as i just mentioned, but was there anything new or particularly interesting that stood out to be super hard to taiwan? in particular, what we saw from general away from her counselor, we was reiteration of trying to stand on the issue of taiwan and how it is independent. and i think in some ways that was a reaction to what we've heard from president biden a few weeks ago. in terms of the question, whether or not the united states would intervene militarily in taiwan scenario and let or not, the united states has moved on from a strategic ambiguity with regards to a stance on taiwan and general. and of course, strategic signal that can be unity hadn't changed. and of course that there wasn't support for taiwan independence and that,
8:04 am
that policy was doing place. but at the end of the day, i think the general way and trying to felt the need to re emphasize, restate how strong their feelings on this point are. what i found particularly interesting though with at the end of talking about the last position in regards to shy one, there was a small comment with regard to other countries who might support taiwan as well. and that's able, politically, also not from dinner, always prospective and that i think quite acute, perhaps the interest in the region are a problem. you made an interesting observation that there was an implication within the speech that asian security matters are for asia to decide. could you explain a bit about that? so we 1st of line from the chinese government before and we see that almost reflected in, for example, as effort to agree, a code of conduct on the south china sea with other countries in se, asia and age. and the concept here is really that the u. s has no say in the region,
8:05 am
extra regional country, this kind of calls and aren't here to determine regional security. and that it's up to countries within the region to determine that. of course the, the countries within the region also have an interest in having extra regional countries and the united states at present and active and engage in the region as well. so there is a contradiction there. these trails in defense minister richard made a comment that transparencies important regarding matters with military build job. not only for china, but for all the countries as well. do you think that is possible transparency on the transparency of course on trust? and i think at the moment we're at a point to really low trust between particularly the united states and china. however, china says that it's military modernization, and it's military is a force for peace in the region and globally. i don't think there was any convincing argument made by president way that reassured other countries in the region that that's actually the case. he could have for example, gone into greater detail into kind of nuclear forces modernization,
8:06 am
which he did not. and thank you so much for those very interesting in size general away from her speech had been flagged by animals as the speech to watch over the course of the 3 day summer. now is the summit wrap stuff. people are still talking about the forceful comments that he made during his address to shangri la dialogue . and to summit is wrapping up jessica, thank very much. did jessica washington talking to us from singapore? hundreds of marches demanding tougher. gun laws have been taking place across the us. the protest follow a series of mass shootings including one at a primary school in texas and a supermarket in buffalo, new york. last month i can reports from washington, dc. rain kept away many, but had little to diminish. the spirit of the thousands that came to protest about more than $19000.00 people in the united states have died in gun related violence this year alone. and after the recent massacre of elementary school children in new
8:07 am
vaal, the texas, those here insist that enough is enough. why not asking for a lat washington dcs mayor summarizing the feeling of all at the rally where demanding change your demand in change? now we need a new american, a majority of americans who share our bow used to let their senators know that they need either need to make change now or get out of our way. for too often, we've had so many mass shoes across the country and we're not gonna sit around our houses in just let ahead, we're gonna come out. we're going to, so congress and everyone, one of our elected officials, there we, we need them to do their job. many traveling from out of state to attend this rally to lula, came from massachusetts to attend this rally. what do you want to see?
8:08 am
why did you come? you know, i came here because of my school. and they found bullets like bullets in the bathroom. the boys bathroom, so it made me feel like i needed to be here for that reason and cause that this gun violence is becoming a huge problem. oh, the rallies took place across the country before i read, ron car, including buffalo, still reeling from a racially motivated attack in may. that took the lives of 10 black people at a local market. it has shredded or our very existence. people are scared to go into stores. our kids are scared to go to school. it was the day on which hundreds of thousands of americans came together with one common message. my cana al jazeera washington

8:26 am
station in buffalo, new york, it's just under that it $4.99 a gallon. just in the last month. the price has gone up about $0.63. and in the past year about $2.00, there's a whole host of reasons on why it's going up so fast, but it's primarily comes down to 3 things. it's this sanctions on russia due to the war in ukraine. there's also just more people traveling by car this summer here in the united states as well, pushing prices up, and then even the threat of a hurricane or a tropical storm, reaching the south east of the united states. this time of year it's fairly common that shuts down refineries and also will drive up prices as well. but the bottom line is, is that gas is becoming much more expensive in the united states and really everywhere around the world. but people here are really feeling it, their pocketbooks. you as president jo biden's plans to assistance for new mexico
